Wolves striker back in business

The Championship's top goalscorer and reigning Golden Boot holder has missed the club's last three matches with a hamstring injury having overcome a calf problem sustained while on duty with the England Under-21's.

Wanderers stuttered in attack without him against Birmingham last week but hit back in style by putting three past Southampton and Derby respectively, and with them needing just three points to claim promotion to the Premier League, Ebanks-Blake is hoping to get a few solid days training under his belt before leading the line against the R's.

"I'm back in training again today (Thursday)," the striker told Wolves' official website. "It's been a hard couple of weeks just trying to get fit and back up to speed but hopefully I'll come through without any problems and I'll be back in the fold.

"It's been a case of taking time out to make sure we get it completely right but it feels good. We've stepped things up over the last couple of days and now training today is the real test. If I come through it will give the gaffer a nice selection problem."

"Of course I'd love to be involved. I want to finish on a high. It's up to the manager but either way I'll just keep very professional and get on with the job."
