Ebanks-Blake changes style for Wolves opportunity

Wolves striker Sylvan Ebanks-Blake is willing to change how he plays in order to regain his first team slot after a series of niggling injuries. The 25-year-old claimed back-to-back Golden Boot titles while Wolves were in the Championship, with 48 goals in two seasons.

"I've been injured more in the last couple of years than I have been throughout my whole career," Ebanks-Blake told skysports.com.

"At the start of this season I picked up a knee injury which was also the same last season. Then when I recovered from that, I had a niggling hamstring problem all season so it was tough.

"By the time that you are fit again, you have a situation where you are fighting to get in the team and the shape of the team has changed too."

The form of Kevin Doyle and Steven Fletcher means the former England Under-21 international is no longer an automatic choice at Molineux.

"I've never given up and I believe that I can get back to the level I was previously," he added.

"With the increased competition for places, when my opportunities come, I have to take them now more than ever."
