Ipswich Witches reserve Chris Mills has said he wants to commit to the Suffolk club once again next season.

The 28-year-old continued his good form with a 10-point haul in Thursday's 56-37 win over Workington Comets, to take his average this season to 6.16.

"I've said to them I want to come back," he told BBC Radio Suffolk.

"I think if they can keep as many riders from this year into next year, that's only a good thing and hopefully I'll be one of those riders to stay."

The result keeps fifth-placed Witches in the hunt for a top-four finish.

"We've got to push and finish as high as we can," Mills added.

"We've let the year slip away a little bit but we've had a lot of injury troubles this year and we've got a young, inexperienced side.

"If we can keep as many riders into next year I think we can then win a trophy or two."

Mills had suffered his own recent setback with a hand injury and admitted he was continuing to ride with side affects.

"It's giving me a bit of pain, as well as my knee, but as soon as you're on the bike it's not too bad," he said.

"But if I hit it again it's going to flare up."
