Ebanks-Blake was unable to find the net in any of his seven appearances, his last goal coming in his only Proact action this season, an EFL Trophy game on 30th August.

Last season he scored 10 goals in 37 matches for Town, but fell out of favour following the departure of Saunders, Danny Wilson critical of the front man’s hunger.

He’s one of 19 players out of contract at the Proact this summer.
