Saunders blames fatigue for Ebanks-Blake injury

Saunders blames fatigue for Ebanks-Blake injury

Despite another crucial three points against Birmingham, Dean Saunders was left concerned over yet more injuries to his already depleted squad.

With Carl Ikeme, Dave Edwards, Bakary Sako and Razak Boukari already confirmed as missing the remaining games of the season, it looks likely that Sylvain Ebanks-Blake has also added his name to that list.

He limped off during the 3-2 win at St. Andrew`s yesterday and left the ground on crutches after injuring his ankle.

"Sylvan Ebanks-Blake is possibly out for the season with ankle ligament damage. Fingers crossed that`s not the case, but we`ll have to see.' Saunders told the Express & Star.

Saunders believes that the Football League's fixture scheduling was partly to blame for the injury, with Wolves playing on Saturday and again on Monday.

He continued: "He went over on his ankle and I think it`s partly down to fatigue and stretching."

With the games coming thick and fast at this time of the season there was little time to recuperate ahead of the game. Jamie O`Hara played with a dead leg that he picked up against Middlesbrough, while David Davis also played on through a groin problem.

Saunders concluded: "David was signalling to come off, but we had to leave him out there, It was just tiredness. Jamie played with a dead leg which he hadn`t fully got over."

Egads ... starting to look like a good thing we have the biggest sqaud in the league ... they're dropping like flies. the loss of SEB however is a big big worry ... he is the only one who knows how to finish. We live in hope that someone can come in and fill his shoes, like Hunt took Sakos... We are Wolves !

No not ligaments but a broken leg! And no it wasn't fatigue that caused it, it was Paul Robinson. The man is a thug, always has been and always will be. -UTW!!
