Millwall winger James Henry is confident of challenging at the opposite end of the Championship table next year following this season's struggles.

The Lions found themselves entrenched in a relegation battle after a frustrating campaign before a strong end to the season saw them move clear of danger and comfortably into mid-table

Henry is now looking to kick on and the former Reading midfielder feels that Millwall's new style of play should stand them in good stead for next term.

"We have shown signs all season of how good a side we are, but it was just a case of turning those performances into points," Henry told Sky Sports.

Learning

"That is the Championship because anyone can beat anyone on their day, but maybe we just didn't realise how tough it was going to be early on.

"The Championship started to find out what we were about and how we like to play the game, so we have had to adapt things slightly.

"Results just haven't seemed to go our way for the majority of this season and when that happens you just have to try to adapt your game and find ways of improving.

"We've learned a few things this year and hopefully we can take those into next season and make it one to remember."
