James Henry heads for Carlisle with Wolves tonight insisting he is not getting carried away with his early performances.
The winger has made an impressive first impact since arriving on loan from Millwall, including scoring three goals in three games, but is keen to maintain those high standards as Wolves aim to keep pace at the top of the Sky Bet League One table.
“I can’t rest on my laurels – I’ve got to keep up those levels of performance now,” says Henry, who was among the spectators at last night’s FA Youth Cup victory against Burton Albion.
“I’ve set my own standard and so has the whole team so we’ll just keep pulling in the right direction so we can get one of those top two spots this season, which is what we all want.
“I’d like to think there is more to come, although it’s hard to say that after scoring three goals in three games!
“But I’m sure as the season goes on there will be different parts of my game that people will see.
“I’ve just got to look forward to playing every game and enjoying myself.
“I want to help the team win. It’s not about individuals out there – we’re a team and we’ve been fantastic, especially in the last couple of weeks.
“We’ve got to keep that going and I’m sure we will.
“I’m very happy here – I just can’t afford to rest on my laurels and I’ve got to keep going now and keep putting in the performances.”
Henry is well aware that victory tonight would see Wolves join Leyton Orient at the table’s summit, but is not taking anything for granted.
And that is even though a win tonight would see Wolves make history with it being their sixth in succession on the road.
“It would be great if we could get the record, especially for the loyal fans who will make their way up there to Carlisle because it’s not the nicest of journeys,” added Henry.
“But we’ll all be pulling in the right direction and we want to repay the fans by bringing all three points back from there.
“We’ll just keep chipping away at it (Leyton Orient’s lead) and keep worrying about ourselves.
“We’re going into every game thinking we can win and then we’ll deal with the other teams’ results as they come in.”
*Tickets for this evening’s game are available up until 12 noon from the Molineux Ticket Office.
