James Henry had a double reason to celebrate Wolves’ 2-0 win against Stevenage on Saturday.
Keeping the team in contention with Sky Bet League One leaders Leyton Orient, and also slotting home his third goal in three games to seal the victory in the closing stages.
The on-loan winger has made a very impressive start to his Wolves career, and is very much enjoying life at Molineux.
“I’m really enjoying it,” he confirmed.
“It’s just nice to be playing week-in, week-out and doing well at such a great club like this.
“I’ve just got to keep going and push for that promotion.
“We were delighted to get the three points on Saturday and keep the pressure on at the top.
“Stevenage made it tough for us – they were very direct and it was a very windy but I thought we dealt with it well.
“The back four did well and Carl Ikeme made one great save and sometimes that’s what it takes to weather the storm and win games.
“We probably could have made it easier for ourselves if we’d taken our chances earlier, but 2-0 is a good victory and we’re all looking forward to Carlisle now.
“We’ve got a game tomorrow where we can go level on points with Leyton Orient.”
As well as displaying some excellent crossing ability, Henry has also shown a keen eye for goal in his first few Wolves games, his cool finish in the closing stages on Saturday easing any nerves as Stevenage aimed to cancel out Kevin Doyle’s early breakthrough.
He added: “I think it was really important to get that two-goal cushion.
“After that we relaxed and we could have had a couple more.
“It was an all-round good performance and a good win.
“I was pretty sure I was on-side - I tried to bend my run and I think they tried to play offside.
“Luckily it was a great ball from ‘Evo’ (Lee Evans) who did brilliantly to spot me and I felt it was a good finish.
“The keeper came out and it gave me a nice angle to hit it into the corner and I was delighted to get my third goal in as many games.”
And now for one of the longest trips of the season as Wolves make their first visit to Brunton Park in over 26 years.
“It’s a bit of a ‘stinky’ journey up there on Tuesday but there’ll be no excuses from us,” said Henry.
“We’ll prepare right – we were in on Sunday doing our cool-down and hopefully we can come back with all three points.”
