Sylvan Ebanks-Blake endured some successful goalscoring spells in the EFL, especially with Plymouth Argyle and Wolverhampton Wanderers.

After joining Plymouth for £200,000 from boyhood club Manchester United, Ebanks-Blake endured a enjoyable goalscoring spell at Home Park under then manager Ian Holloway. He scored 23 goals in 74 matches for the Green Army.

The striker’s form at Home Park ended up with a £1.5m move to Wolverhampton Wanderers, where he became a fan favourite and struck up a good partnership with Republic of Ireland striker Kevin Doyle. He scored nine goals in 13 games for Wolves, and was rewarded with a call up to the England Under-21 squad. In five years at Molineux, Ebanks-Blake played 193 games and scored 62 goals in Wolves colours.

However, since leaving Wolves, the striker has dropped down the football league pyramid quickly, ending up in Southern League Premier Division Central with Barwell F.C.
