JAMES Henry admits he already has one eye on a Wembley appearance with Millwall in the FA Cup semi-final.

The Lions winger delivered a man-of-the-match display in Saturday’s 3-0 fifth round success at Luton, opening the scoring and providing the cross which set up Rob Hulse for Millwall’s second before the break.

Championship rivals Blackburn Rovers stand between Henry and a dream Wembley date after they were paired together in a quarter-final tie at The Den.

But for the 23-year-old, the chance to play at the national stadium would be a dream come true.

Henry said: “This is as far as I’ve got in the cup.

“I’m really looking forward to the next round but we’ve got some important league games coming up before that so we’ve got to try and forget about this win quickly and move on to the league.

“There are still some big teams left in this competition and it is not going to be easy, but we are one game away from Wembley now and I think that is the aim.

“It would be fantastic, especially for me.

“I was on loan both seasons Millwall went to Wembley in the play-offs and unfortunately my loan finished 12 hours before the first one, which was a bit disappointing.

“I would love to get to Wembley.

“It would be a fantastic occasion for the whole club and all of my family, as well as myself.”
