RETURNING winger James Henry played a crucial cameo role in Millwall's 1-0 win over Leeds United, according to manager Kenny Jackett.

Henry had been rated 50-50 to recover from a hamstring injury in time to face the Whites but passed a late fitness test and was named on the bench.

The 23-year-old came on for Liam Feeney after 59 minutes at The Den and Jackett believed his introduction was "certainly needed".

The Lions boss was also pleased with the impact made by substitute Dany N'Guessan – making his first appearance of the season – after the winger was involved in Chris Wood's winning goal.

"It was a good set-back for Shane Lowry by Dany and an excellent cross," he said. "Both subs played their part and that's when you need to have the squad, players and competition.

"James has been a good player for us over a number of years. Anybody that comes to games regularly will know what he can do. I was very pleased to have him back.

"It was only on Saturday that he was passed 100% fit to be on the bench. He made an impact and he was certainly needed.

"I was pleased with him and with Dany in a shorter period of time on the other wing. He also gave us some presence and fresh legs."
