James Henry is looking to carry on where he left off for Wolves tonight.
The on-loan Millwall winger is set for his home debut against Notts County in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy just three days after starring as man of the match in Saturday’s 3-0 win at Colchester in his first game for the club.
Henry’s considerable contribution included setting up Kevin Doyle for the third goal and the 24-year-old is looking to continue that form against the Magpies before Wolves sign off for 10 days.
“We’ve got a big game against Notts County and hopefully we can win and then get some rest but keep working hard in training and try to take that form into the following games,” said Henry.
“Sometimes it’s not ideal to have a break but sometimes it is – we might be a little bit fresher.
“I felt good for the first 70 minutes; I got a bit tired towards the end because I hadn’t played for three weeks but I’ll keep getting fitter and hopefully chip in with a few goals as well.
“I’m just looking forward to carrying on enjoying my football and hopefully creating goals for others.”
Henry is looking to repay the fans with some success after two relegations.
“There’s been disappointment for the last two years and it’s important we keep trying to play well and get this club back to where it should be,” he said.
“Saturday’s game was a massive one – without having a game this weekend, it was really important we took all three points and kept the pressure on the other two teams.”
Jackett is confident Henry can have a major impact for Wolves this season.
“To impress on your debut is a good thing,” the head coach said.
“He’s got a good understanding of playing wide right in a 4-4-2. Him and Matt Doherty can form a good partnership, both defensively and going forwards.”
