City of Liverpool manager Michael Ellison is eyeing FA Cup progression as his side visit Ramsbottom United.

The Rams have been tricky customers for the Purps in recent meetings. During their season opener last term, they played out a goalless draw before Rammy got one over City of Liverpool in a game marred with controversy.

City of Liverpool felt they had a clear goal chalked off as well as numerous claims for a penalty before Jamie Rother scored the only goal of the match.

The Purps go into the clash off the back of back-to-back defeats to Glossop North End and Skelmersdale United on Tuesday.

Although there were positives sign, Ellison is looking to pick up a win, by hook or crook. He told Off The Park: “It’s a new game, they’ll pose different threats. It’s a game we want to win.

“We’ll go there ready and prepare the lads and we’ll go in and go after them again. 

“(It’s) Always difficult, it’ll depend on the conditions, depend on what the conditions are like – if it dries. But we’ve got to go there and go compete and apply ourselves well.

“In both of the games we’ve played we’ve created chances, we’re just not taking them but if we manage to start doing that then we will get some wins and some points on the board (in the league).”
