Fast bowler Matt Henry says Derbyshire are looking to build on the momentum generated from back-to-back wins to the NatWest T20 Blast.

Derbyshire Falcons made it two wins from their first two games with a three-run victory over Yorkshire Vikings in front of a sold out Queen’s Park crowd on Saturday, backing up their seven-wicket win over Northants Steelbacks the night before.

Speaking to BBC Radio Derby, Henry said: “You’ve got to make sure you back your plans and it’s exciting to have the opportunity to go and win the game.

“We thought 165 was a par score and we knew we had to bowl well. On such a small ground with a rapid outfield we had to bowl and field well and we did that.

“They bowled very well up top and they kept the squeeze on so we had to get momentum back so we wanted to come out and be aggressive.”

Henry praised the belief amongst the squad and now hopes to maintain momentum during a block of away games before returning to Derby.

He said: “It’s a great start for the Club. Twenty20 is a big momentum game so we want to keep pushing forward. Today it didn’t go all our way, but we believed and stuck to our plans.

“If you can do well in the away games, especially after we’ve gone two from two, we can come back and make our home a fortress.”
