Millwall winger Henry trying to cut out niggling injuries

JAMES Henry believes he can reduce the number of injuries he picks up by tweaking the way he looks after his body between matches.

Henry has been prone to muscle strains this season but says he is working with the club's medical staff to prevent them from reoccurring.

The winger recovered from a calf problem in time to face Ipswich Town last Saturday and was pleased to be back in action, despite the Lions' 3-0 defeat.

"It was nice to be out there again and to get 90 minutes under my belt – my body needs that," he told NewsAtDen. "I need to get a run of games going and try to pick up some form.

"The injury that's just gone was probably self-inflicted – I think I did too much training. It's about managing yourself as a player and as a person. I'll get that right.

"I think I've been playing really well this year – it's just those niggling injuries and unfortunately they come throughout the season.

"If I can do a little bit extra in the gym and be a bit better off the pitch, maybe I can cut some of those injuries out. I'm looking at it myself and with the backroom staff."

    Nice to see that. A player who is really focused on his career and making the most out of a talent that I wish I had. The mark of a good professional and someone to take my boys to go and watch. Up the 'wall. Also shows the makings of the "Millwall type" that KJ was referring to. I haven't felt this much belief about my team since the late eighties...
