James Henry has enjoyed some spectacular debuts in his career so far – and would like nothing more than adding to the list with Wolves when he lands his opportunity.
The on-loan winger is keen to get his Molineux career up and running and is available for tomorrow’s trip to Colchester (3pm), hunting another debut goal as produced on previous occasions at other clubs.
“I went on loan to Bournemouth and scored twice on my debut against Bristol Rovers and I scored on my home debut for Millwall, a 35-yarder against Swindon,” he said.
“So it would be nice to emulate that and get a goal tomorrow or Tuesday, whenever I make my debut comes.
“I just want to come in and play some games, start playing well and help the team too.
“I’m really looking forward to the opportunity and looking to get us as high up the table as we can.
“In the next three months there’s a chance for me to really knuckle down and really enjoy my football and really put what’s a really big club back on the road to the Championship.”
Henry admits he was disappointed to lose his place in the Millwall team, but that there was no “falling-out” and he now sees the switch to Molineux as a fresh start.
As things stand he is not looking too far beyond the three-month loan but is clearly keen to try and land a permanent move if all goes well.
“I played a lot of games at Millwall – pretty much every match for three seasons – so it was disappointing to lose my place,” said Henry.
“But it wasn’t a case of a falling-out, rather a case of getting me out to give me a fresh lease of life.
“This will give me that and hopefully I can get a lot of game time under my belt and really help Wolves push on.
“It (a permanent deal) is not something that’s happened yet but hopefully it’s something that could happen.
“It’s something I’m open to discussions about and we’ll see how I do.”
Henry’s arrival reignites a working relationship with Kenny Jackett, who helped him play his best football while manager at Millwall.
The winger is keen to try and emulate the success enjoyed at the New Den as he prepares to launch his Wolves career.
He says: “I think Kenny gives me a lot of freedom and a lot of responsibility to do my own thing and at the same time, tell me what he wants to do sometimes so I think it’s just about having that good relationship and understanding of each other really.
“Hopefully we can pick up where we left off at Millwall when he was there and keep the good run going.”
