Jones praise for team-mate Henry

David Jones has hailed Wolves team-mate Karl Henry and believes he has been badly missed in the last three games.

Henry has been serving a three-match suspension, but is available again for Saturday's game against Portsmouth at Fratton Park and Jones can't wait to have him alongside in the Wolves engine room.

"I think even in these three games we've missed Henry, you can certainly appreciate that as a player," Jones told the club's website.

"When you're looking down the line to see who's in the team, it's re-assuring to see him in it.

"You feel 'Oh good, Henry's here' because if there are any problems on the pitch, he'll address it as well as the fact I've got a good playing relationship with him as well.

"He offers a lot defensively, but he always starts moves off well. He does a lot of things which people don't see - he sees things quickly and he gives the ball early to players like myself and links play very well. And he's always organising - he's very loud on and off the pitch; he's a leader.

"He sets the tone for us and the game with a tackle and no one should under-estimate his contribution to the team."
