SKIPPER ALL SET

15 February 2013

Ronnie Henry has his eyes set firmly on the task in hand as all the preparation is complete ahead of the Hatters tie against Millwall.

 

“Training is now all done and we will be heading home to rest our legs for the big game tomorrow.”

 

“The lads have been in the past three days training and worked hard and prepare for the game.

 

“After the defeat the other night we were all disappointed and angry with ourselves, tell each other what was wrong and a few home truths came out.

 

“We managed to come in Wednesday morning and get it off our chest, then Thursday and Friday we've worked hard on our shape and how we’re going to play and tomorrow...well, it's not going to be hard to get up for it, it’s a massive game.”

 

It will be another proud day for Henry as he leads the Hatters out with the world watching on Saturday and at 12:45 his smile may be kept under-wraps but his pride wont.

 

“I'll be very proud,” he said. “It's great to be captain of such a big club and especially to be leading them out for such a big game where we could create history. I'm looking forward to it.

 

“The Norwich game has gone now, but obviously we can look back at that with confidence. We know what we did then and we will build on that for tomorrow against very good opposition, but one we should be able to overcome.”

 

When asked about his leadership stance Henry prefers to internally keep his ideas inside the club walls.

 

“I just work hard myself and set an example really,” said Henry. “On the training field and in the changing room, when things have got to be said, the lads take it on the chin and I'm bubbly and lively and like to keep a good atmosphere in the changing rooms and keep the team spirit up really.”

 

The Hatters have triumphed twice against higher league opposition by just a slender 1-0 win in the FA Cup and Henry will be more than happy if the outcome is the same and was ready to snap the hands off of anyone ready to offer that outcome.

 

“1-0 will be perfect I'll take that right now,” said the skipper. “Zero against is something we’re looking for and if we can score all well and good, but were looking to win the game and I don't see why we can’t. 1-0 will be perfect though.”

 

Henry is yet to register his first Hatters goal, and the captain believes tomorrow would be the perfect time to notch his first in the Town colours.

 

Tomorrow would be a great time to do it,” he joked. “Hopefully we can win 1-0 and I'll be the goalscorer.”

 

And Blue Square rate a Ronnie Henry winner in a 1-0 Town win a 250/1 shot...
