Sylvan Ebanks-Blake: Scored twice before suffering injury at Birmingham

Scans have confirmed Ebanks-Blake suffered a broken fibula and a sprained ankle at Birmingham on Easter Monday.

The 27-year-old had earlier scored twice for Wolves to help secure a third successive win which left them a point above the relegation places.

He told the club website: "Obviously I'm bitterly disappointed to be missing the last five games, but I'll be right behind the lads."

Manager Dean Saunders said: "In the space of 16 days and three games we have lost three players with broken bones.

"Against Bristol City we had Carl Ikeme with a broken hand and Dave Edwards with a foot fracture, and now Sylvan. They are freak injuries and they are ones that we could well do without.

"It was a bitter blow for Sylvan on Monday and for the club too. But it gives someone else a chance."

Nouha Dicko, on loan from Wigan, replaces Ebanks-Blake against Bimingham and could now feature from the start at Bolton on Saturday.

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
