James Henry was delighted Wolves were able to provide the travelling support with such an enjoyable afternoon at Walsall on Saturday – having been beaten by the Saddlers earlier in the season.
Wolves took over two sides of the Banks’s Stadium with 3,444 supporters making the trip and, having been beaten 1-0 in the league earlier this season, managed overcome a dangerous Walsall side thanks to goals from Nouha Dicko (2) and Bakary Sako.
“The fans have been fantastic since I came here,” said winger Henry.
“To have that many fans at an away game was brilliant.
“It’s been like that pretty much every away game with 20-plus thousand at Molineux as well.
“It really does help having so many supporters on your side.
“Saturday was obviously a special win because it is a local derby and it’s nice to give something back to the fans after being beaten earlier in the season by them.
“It is a special day for the fans and we just need to keep playing like we are playing and keep progressing.
“It was a dogged performance. They are a decent side and we knew it was going to be a tough game and we had to be patient.
“We really tried to play the counter-attacking game. We knew we had to get the ball out wide and get balls into the box and score goals - and we got two from that, which is good.
“We just need to keep doing that and keep pushing to keep ourselves at the top of the table.”
When it comes to trying to give those supporters what they really want – namely promotion from Sky Bet League One – Henry’s view is simple.
It’s the old cliché of one game at a time!
Wolves have won eight games in succession but face a tough test tomorrow away at a highly-rated Swindon side still chasing the play-offs.
“There’s still a massive job to do,” he added.
“Come May 4th we want to be in one of the top two spots, and preferably the top spot.
“But we are under no illusions.
“It is going to be a tough 13 games but we are going into every game, and I know it is a cliche, one game at a time and believing we can win every game.
“We are scoring goals at the moment and we need to keep that going.
“It is good to show other teams that we are doing well but so are Brentford.
“We just have to keep playing our game and not look over our shoulders - we must look forward and take this club back into the Championship.”
