Nothing to prove for Ebanks-Blake
I remember getting a little ahead of myself around this time last year in regards to Sylvan Ebanks-Blake.
I was confident he would score around 20 goals last season and despite having to wait till October for that first goal to come, I remained faithful to SEB.
But as we all know, his second goal didn't come until late April and that was where he finished a disappointing season.
But Ebanks-Blake doesn't think he has anything to prove.
"It`s not what I`ve got to prove. It`s about what we as a group have got to prove to the Premier League - that we can play at this level, stay here and consolidate," he said to the Express & Star.
He added: "That`s all that matters. What I do, what anyone else does, is irrelevant as long as the team gain from it.'
With the addition of record signing Steven Fletcher for around £7million, SEB's future looked in doubt.
But he enjoyed a good pre season and with Doyle's injury for the opening game and Fletcher missing the Everton game, SEB has started the season in the starting line up and scored the equaliser in the draw with Everton.
He concluded: "The gaffer picks the team and I leave that decision solely to him. I want to stay in the team and work hard. We`ve got good competition in my position and throughout the whole squad. For me personally, I just want to stay fit and help contribute to another season in the Premier League.'
