Wolves striker Sylvan Ebanks-Blake has been named the Championship's player of the month for March.

Ebanks-Blake scored seven goals during the month, including two against Southampton and another brace in the dramatic 3-2 win at Charlton.

The 1.5m January signing from Plymouth said: "It's really pleasing to win a personal award like this but a lot of credit has to go to the team."

Wolves boss Mick McCarthy said: "I'm delighted for Sylvan - we all are."

McCarthy added: "He was up there in the scoring charts when he came here and he's carried on and helped us to get back into the play-off frame."

"I'm really enjoying myself here at Wolves. I got off to a good start and the team have picked up and are kicking on," Ebanks-Blake said.

"If we can win the next two games then we will have a massive chance of being in and around things at the end of the season."

He was selected to win the award ahead of fellow nominees Kevin Phillips (West Bromwich Albion), Peter Whittingham (Cardiff City) and Fraizer Campbell (Hull City).
