Henry ready for Barton rematch

It was suggested Henry intentionally attempted to provoke Barton

with a number of rough challenges when the latter visited with

former club Newcastle in August 2010. Barton has since moved to QPR

and is set to make his debut against Newcastle on Monday night

before the Londoners travel to Molineux next weekend. Having

surrendered their unbeaten run against Tottenham on Saturday,

Wolves will want to return to winning ways and Henry is ready to

lead the fight against Barton and company. He said in The Sun:

“It’ll be a tough, competitive game and I am really relishing the

chance to get in amongst people. That’s my kind of game. “We are

keeping the ball better and playing a bit more football than we did

last season, but we are still capable of mixing it up, putting a

foot in and trying to stop teams from playing. “It’s disappointing

we didn’t manage to do that against Spurs. “But we’re certainly not

panicking after our first defeat and we’ll be looking to kick on

against QPR. “Joey Barton? Never heard of him!”
