Five in five, but Sylvan Ebanks-Blake would swap goals for wins

17 November 2015

Sylvan Ebanks-Blake has got that goalscoring feeling, but the Chesterfield striker says he would swap goals for wins after the Spireites lost 2-1 to Oldham Athletic in their latest outing.

His strike against the Latics was his fifth in as many games and took his overall tally for the season to seven, which is his best form in front of goal since his Wolves days during the 2012/13 campaign.

The front man admitted his disappointment after the club's latest defeat in Sky Bet League 1, though, which was their eighth loss of the season.

The result also means they've now won only two of nine matches on home soil so far, but the 29-year-old remains confident.

“I'm delighted to score goals but I'd prefer to score goals and the team win,” Ebanks-Blake told the club's official website. “I'd prefer to have got the three points than score but it wasn't to be.

"It's hard to put a finger on the home form because we play well, but we seem to just let it slip and we should really put the foot on the opposition and finish them off.

"We'll shake it, we've got too many good players in the team not to and we'll get it right."

Next up for Dean Saunders' men is a trip to Port Vale, who are level on points but one place above them in the Sky Bet League 1 table.
