Striker happy at Molineux.

Dean Saunders admitted that the club had received an offer for striker Sylvan Ebanks-Blake during the transfer window but both the manager and player seem content that he remains at Molineux.

The popular number nine netted his 11th goal of the campaign in last week’s home defeat against Blackpool, and he was inches away from adding to his tally and giving Wolves s deserved point from their trip to Leicester on Thursday when his stoppage time shot struck the post. 

He lamented: “On another day that would have gone in. It was unlucky really. We have been in Leicester’s position before, where you don’t play particularly well and teams dominate you. 

“But Leicester have that winning feeling and that is something we have to get back because we should definitely have got something from the game there. 

“They are without doubt one of the best teams in the League and yet we dominated play for 75% of the game. So we have to take the positives from it.

“We played well and were unlucky not to get a result. You can see the way that the gaffer wants us to play and you will see us get results sooner rather than later.”

Regarding a possible move in the last few days, Sylvan adds: “Speculation is speculation – my job is still the same and that’s to play football and I’m delighted to be doing that at the minute. I’m playing so I’m happy. 

“I’m happy here at Wolves. We need the results to start going for us but I genuinely believe that the way we are playing they will come and you will see the tide turn.

“On a personal note I’m happy with my form and happy that I’m in the team and playing – I’m here for the cause.

“I think we have to take one game at a time and try and get some wins and see where that puts us. The manager has said that we are trying to build for an assault next season although you can’t rule out this year as there are still 16 games left to play. 

“So let’s just try and pick up as many points as we can and take things from there. There have been a lot of changes around here. I’ve been here for five years and there has been more changes in the last six to eight months than all the rest of the time put together. 

“We have to give it time. We’ve changed and we need patience but I’m convinced that we will come good.”

Speaking of two departures this week, Sylvan says: “Steven (Mouyokolo)  and Zubes (Ronald Zubar)are very good friends of mine and I wish them all the best. They are great lads. Steven has been unlucky with injuries and Zubes had a really good time at Wolves.  

“But that’s football – you move on and I wish them all the best in their future careers and hopefully our paths will cross again. Zubey is a great character to have around the place but he has a new challenge now.”
