JAMES Henry was delighted to play a key role in Oxford United’s victory over AFC Wimbledon.

The winger was heavily involved in two of the home side’s goals and was a constant threat as they earned a 3-0 victory at the Kassam Stadium.

Henry, a summer signing following his release from Wolverhampton Wanderers, has looked more at home in his preferred position on the right-hand flank in recent weeks.

The 28-year-old continued his good form, crossing for Ricardinho to fire home United’s second, before seeing an 84th-minute effort parried into the path of Xemi, who made no mistake on the rebound.

Henry said: “It’s nice to finally have an assist next to my name.

“It was a great finish from Ricardinho, he’s been fantastic ever since he has come through the door.”

Henry, who has found the net twice in all competitions this season, was twice denied by goalkeeper George Long.

But he is optimistic about adding to his U’s goals tally soon.

Henry said: “I was a little bit disappointed with the second chance.

“The first one I hit the target but the second one, Xemi finished it off nicely, so hopefully it will come soon.

“But the victory is very pleasing.

“We can’t just rely on the one win here and there, we’ve got to put runs together and we’ve taken a step in the right direction.”
