Wolverhampton Wanderers’ midfielder Karl Henry knows not to get carried away by good results, but he was pleased to play out his 200th game with a win.

The two Barclays Premier League victories have marked Wolves’ best start to a Barclays Premier League season, but it has not made Henry and his teammates complacent.

"It is only two games and no one is getting carried away," Henry said.

"But we were talking in the dressing room after the Fulham game about how long it took us to get six points last season. I think it was six or seven games. So to get that in two games is fantastic and a great start for us.

"It was a good way to celebrate my 200th with a good performance and a win against Fulham and now we move on to the next one!

"I am sure there will be times this season when three points are hard to come by because in this league sometimes you can't buy a win. So to have got two in two at the start of the season is very satisfying.”

Henry is keeping realistic targets in mind for the club, citing the magic 40 points Mick McCarthy's men secured last season to keep them from the drop, just one point clear of local rivals Birmingham last term.


 

The local boy added: "Our target, as it always has been, is to reach 40 points as quickly as possible.

"And if we can do that then we can start looking at finishing higher up the league. It's a fantastic start but we know we have to keep it going."

Henry, who joined Wolves in 2006, is also looking ahead to tougher fixtures, including this weekend’s visit to their other West Midlands rivals, Aston Villa.

"Villa is a tough game as they all are," says Henry.

"But I'm sure we can make it difficult for them as well. We've done OK at Villa Park since getting into the league, drawing one and winning one, and it's a place we enjoy going to play.”
