Ebanks-Blake leads the race for the Golden Boot once again with 24 goals

Wolves striker Sylvan Ebanks-Blake has been named Championship player of the year at the fourth Football League Awards in London.

The 23-year-old beat Reading's Kevin Doyle and his Wolves team-mate Michael Kightly to the top prize.

He also won the goal of the year award for his strike against Charlton in March last year.

Leicester's Matt Fryatt and Grant Holt of Shrewsbury won the League One and Two player awards.

Leeds midfielder Fabian Delph, 19, who missed out to Fryatt, gained some consolation when he was named as young player of the year.

Former Fulham star and broadcaster Jimmy Hill was also recognised for his achievements by taking an award for his contribution to league football.

Hill, 80, was given a standing ovation from the 800-plus guests at the ceremony.

Ebanks-Blake has scored 24 league goals in 39 games this season, a tally that has helped to propel Championship leaders Wolves towards promotion to the Premier League.
