West Brom midfielder Morrison can't understand Wolves fans jeering Henry

West Bromwich Albion midfielder James Morrison can't understand the Wolves boo-boys targeting Karl Henry.

Morrison knows that while tough tackling Henry might be giving him a different challenge today, it will be every bit as tough as Scotland faced against Spain.

The West Brom midfielder said: "I have never come up against somebody as good as Xavi. I couldn't get near him.

"Normally you might try and get in tight, get close, but it just didn't matter. He was always in the right position to pass the ball on before you got near. I'm like ­everybody, you see Spain on TV and see how good they are, but when you are on the same field it is different. I didn't realise Xavi was that good.

"But if you're asking me if facing Wolves is going to be easy after that you couldn't be further from the truth. It's a different test, but every bit as tough.

"Karl is as good as there is in the Premier League when it comes to tackling and as far as I'm ­concerned that's just as much a part of the game."
