Kenny Jackett today hailed winger James Henry for giving Wolves ‘another dimension’.
Henry scored his third goal in three games in Saturday’s 2-0 win against Stevenage to clinch his fifth man of the match performance since signing on loan from Millwall.
And the head coach believes the 24-year-old, who is set to secure a £250,000 permanent move in January, has added to Wolves’ game.
“The wing threat is a strong part of our game and he gives us another dimension down that right-hand side,” said Jackett.
“James has made a good start and also got three goals, which from a right-wing position is very good.
“He has a good base now to build on because he knows he can do it here and has the chance to show his capabilities.
“I was looking initially to see him develop a good relationship with Matt Doherty and it will be interesting to see how that develops.”
Henry is determined to play a role in helping Wolves to promotion.
“I’m really enjoying it. It’s just nice to be playing week-in, week-out and doing well at such a great club,” he said. “I’ve just got to keep going and push for that promotion.”
Wolves go to Carlisle tomorrow night for their game in hand knowing victory would put them level on points with leaders Leyton Orient – and Henry is targeting the top spot.
“We were delighted to get the three points to keep the pressure on at the top,” he said. “Now we can go level with Leyton Orient. Hopefully we can come back with all three points.”
Of Saturday’s goal, Henry said: “I think they tried to play offside but I tried to bend my run and was pretty sure I was ‘on’. It was a great ball from ‘Evo’ (Lee Evans).”
