Wolverhampton Wanderers striker Sylvan Ebanks-Blake has topped the Football League's Actim Index chart, the official player rating system, after banging in 25 goals this season.

Ebanks-Blake's Actim total of 753 points, put him 46 ahead of Watford's Tommy Smith. Reading hitman Kevin Doyle was third with 689.

The Actim Index was introduced in the 2004/5 season to assess a player's performance in each game.

Ebanks-Blake's total was due to his remarkable record of 25 goals from 89 shots - a conversion rate of 28%.

Actim points are also allocated based on time on the pitch, goals, assists and clean sheets.

Shots, tackles, clearances and saves are also taken into account and points are taken away from players for negative actions such as yellow and red cards and shots off targets.

The former Plymouth Argyle striker, who was released by Manchester United in 2006, is confident he has the physical attributes to shine in the Premier League with Manager Mick McCarthy's newly-promoted Molineux side.

Ebanks-Blake, 23, is no doubt that this has been the most consistent campaign of his career.

He said: "If a team plays to my strengths, which is ball in to feet where I can hold it up, then I believe I can score goals at any level.

"Until I do there will be critics, but I prefer to do my talking on the pitch - not in the Press."

"Last year was a bit stop-start. This season I've been in the side from the beginning - and have benefitted from playing regularly.

"I've improved by working hard on the training ground, but we have good players who create chances for the strikers and I've managed to put away more than I've missed.

"There's also competition for places and luckily for me I've kept scoring and have kept my place.

"As any striker will tell you, if you're playing regularly and you're confident, then you're going to score goals."
