Sylvan: Wolves will avoid drop

Mick McCarthy’s team are currently just one place, and one point,

above the relegation zone. In the previous two campaigns, Wolves

have managed to cling on to their top-flight status, and

Ebanks-Blake believes that experience will prove invaluable.

“That’s not to say we want to be there – far from it – but at least

we’ve got the experience of being in this position and getting out

of it,” he told the Express and Star. “Hopefully that will tell

over this period and we can pick some points up. “It only needs a

couple of good results and you can shoot up the table. It’s

ridiculous how tight it is.” The former Manchester United youngster

started only his second Premier League game of season against

Norwich last week and scored in a 2-2 draw. Ebanks-Blake suffered

an injury against Northampton in the Carling Cup in August and has

had to wait patiently for an opportunity due the impressive

partnership of Steven Fletcher and Kevin Doyle. However, he reckons

Wolves are now benefitting from their new strength in depth of

their squad. “It’s very much a team game now,” he added. “I’ve been

patient and kept on working and was delighted to get the

opportunity. We’ve got a lot of games coming up and we’re going to

need the full squad. “Everyone’s ready and looking to take their

opportunity, which can only be good for the club. “I was

unfortunate to get injured against Northampton. But I’m fully fit

now and was pleased to get a start. “When you start you can feel

your way into it and build and that’s what I felt I did against

Norwich.”
