Hennessey eyeing points boost

Keeper looking for points from trips to Arsenal and Bolton

Wayne Hennessey: Focused on helping Wolves climb the Premier League table

Wayne Hennessey is hoping lightning does not strike twice as Wolves again take on Arsenal and Bolton in successive away days.

Last season Mick McCarthy's side lost 1-0 at Bolton on 2nd February before going down 2-0 to the Gunners at the Emirates ten days later.

This season it is the opposite way around - Wolves first face Arsenal on Tuesday before going to the Reebok on Saturday - and Hennessey is hoping for different results this time around as McCarthy's side attempt to haul themselves away from relegation trouble.

The Wolves keeper told the club's official website: "Hopefully we can go to Arsenal and try and get a result. They have got some fabulous stars in their team but these are the games we thrive on and want to do well.

"Both games will be difficult but we will go out and give our best to try and get some points on the board."
