Henrik Dalsgaard saw positives in the nil-nil draw with Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday. Reflecting on the match, the Danish fullback saw plenty to build on in what he labelled a fair performance.

"Yeah," said Henrik, speaking to iFollow after the full time whistle. "I guess it was. I think both teams had some chances to get the three points so I guess it was fair.

"I'd rather have three points and concede a goal, but it's the first clean sheet of the season so it's nice.

"It was tough. I felt that the first half was difficult for us, they switched the game pretty well. The second half was much better and I think that we put more pressure on them, and we created a few chances. As we've said before, nil-nil was a fair result.

"Of course, it was nil-nil at half time so we went for the win but you can't just go all out attack. I think we had some chances, we could've had three points but that's the way it is."

The right-back has now been with The Bees for a month and believes he has settled in well.

"I think the lads and the staff have been very kind to me and my family, so I already feel like a good part of the team and I feel ready to spend a few years here.

"It's a small stadium but it's a great crowd and a good English stadium. I enjoy it every time I am here, I really enjoy it."

Denmark have once again called up the 28-year-old for their matches against Poland and Armenia this week. Henrik feels this is a chance to shift his focus before coming back to play Aston Villa.

"I always enjoy representing my country so hopefully I'll get some more points than I have got here, then come back and get some more.

"If we keep performing like this, I'm sure it will turn at some point soon."
