Bristol City goalkeeper Tom Heaton experiences sense of deja-vu in defeat at Molineux
Bristol City goalkeeper Tom Heaton experienced a familiar sinking sensation after once again coming off second best to former team-mate Sylvan Ebanks-Blake.
Both launched their careers at Old Trafford and played in the same Manchester United reserve team before moving on in search of regular first-team football.
Since then, striker Ebanks-Blake has developed a habit of scoring goals against Heaton, the latest being his 76th minute equaliser for Wolves at Molineux on Saturday.
Heaton recalled: “We played together at Manchester United and he had digs just a few doors up from me.

“Since we’ve left, he usually either scores against me or gives me something to do and it has happened again.
“Sylvan is a good centre forward, but it is frustrating because we managed to keep him quiet for most of the game.
“But he only needs one opportunity and, unfortunately for us, he put it away when it came.”
Under-pressure Wolves boss Dean Saunders was indebted to goal-scorers Ebanks-Blake and Kevin Doyle.
He said: “They are goal-scorers and can do that, which is why they get paid big wages.
“It was a real struggle, but they made the difference in the end.”
