Boss Dean Saunders today urged Sylvan Ebanks-Blake to maintain a decent goalscoring streak between now and the end of the season to help Wolves secure their spot in the npower Championship.
Wolves’ top scorer notched his 12th and best of the campaign to date with an acrobatic overhead kick in Tuesday’s 2-0 win at Millwall, having earlier set up Dave Edwards for the first.
The striker had been struggling with some minor injuries been shown none of that as he produced an all-action display to help Wolves to victory.
“I thought Sylvan did brilliantly,” said the boss.
“He made the first goal and scored a magnificent second – it was a great performance from him.
“I’ve not started him in every game and he has been struggling a bit with his groin, hamstrings and back so we’ve had to ease him through training.
“But he is a goalscorer who gets himself in the right place at the right time and you can’t buy that and you can’t teach it.
“If he scores five or six goals between now and the end of the season he will have done his job.
“Some of them will be matchwinners and some will be instinctive like the one at Millwall.
“You can’t teach strikers that – you can tell them where to run and what runs to make but they can work out where the ball is going before everyone else.
“That is why you have to pay a lot of money for them.”
