Henry confident of Wolves revival

Mick McCarthy’s men put in a disappointing performance as they went

down to a 1-0 home defeat to their West Midlands rivals at the end

of November. That left Wolves four points adrift of safety, but

they responded by winning three of their next four to climb up to

12th at Christmas. They have since won just one in eight,

culminating in the 3-1 FA Cup reverse at Crystal Palace in midweek.

The Molineux outfit are back to just one place above the drop zone

but Henry has pointed to the way Wolves bounced back from their

previous derby setback for inspiration as they aim for Premier

League survival. “Our attitude has always been great but that was

not a performance the gaffer expected,” he told the Birmingham

Mail. “It wasn’t characteristic of us. “We got our heads together

after the Birmingham game, we had a few meetings and realised that

we needed to do more and get back to the Wolves that we were. “We

have to prove that we can stay in this league. “You have to

stabilise first and that is what we are trying to do. It will be a

massive season for us if we can stay in this league. “The club

could really kick on next season and go from strength to strength.”
