Wolves striker, Sylvan Ebanks-Blake, suffered a broken leg during the 3-2 victory over Birmingham City City on Monday, ruling him out for the rest of the season. 

Ebanks-Blake's goalscoring form had been one positive in Wolves' otherwise poor season, as the one time England Under-21 international has netted 15 times this season. 

Wolves managed to pull away from the Championship trap-door on Monday with a victory against Midlands rivals Birmingham City. Ebanks-Blake scored twice during the win but following a collision with Blues defender Paul Robinson, Ebanks-Blake was stretchered off with suspected ligament damage. A scan after the game revealed that the former Manchester United man had cracked a bone in his left fibula, bringing a premature end to his season. 

Wolves have been unlucky in recent weeks with injuries to Bakary Sako, Carl Ikeme and Dave Edwards, ruling all three out for the remainder of the campaign.

Sako was the first to have his season ended early following a hamstring strain in the game against Bristol City, Ikeme broke a bone in his hand during the same match after punching the tactics board, whilst Dave Edwards also came off at Ashton Gate with a fractured foot. 

Wolves boss Dean Saunders has bemoaned his sides luck with injuries and told BBC Sport: "In the space of 16 days and three games we have lost three players with broken bones. Against Bristol City, we had Ikeme with a broken hand and Dave Edwards with a foot fracture and now Sylvan."

Saunders added: "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."
