Henry and Barton: The pair are getting ready to again go head-to-head

Sky Bet

Wolves midfielder Karl Henry has thrown down the gauntlet to Joey Barton as they again prepare to go head-to-head at Molineux.

It was suggested Henry intentionally attempted to provoke Barton with a number of rough challenges when the latter visited with former club Newcastle in August 2010.

Barton has since moved to QPR and is set to make his debut against Newcastle on Monday night before the Londoners travel to Molineux next weekend.

Having surrendered their unbeaten run against Tottenham on Saturday, Wolves will want to return to winning ways and Henry is ready to lead the fight against Barton and company.

No panic

He said in The Sun: "It'll be a tough, competitive game and I am really relishing the chance to get in amongst people. That's my kind of game.

"We are keeping the ball better and playing a bit more football than we did last season, but we are still capable of mixing it up, putting a foot in and trying to stop teams from playing.

"It's disappointing we didn't manage to do that against Spurs.

"But we're certainly not panicking after our first defeat and we'll be looking to kick on against QPR.

"Joey Barton? Never heard of him!"
