MAGAYE Gueye says he won't fulfil his potential at Millwall unless he plays on a regular basis.
The former Everton star, who has not started a league game since joining the Lions in the summer, has been told to improve his fitness by manager Ian Holloway.
Holloway feels the Frenchman has not made enough of an impact when he has come on in games, although he did score a late equaliser against Sheffield Wednesday in August.
Gueye, though, claims he needs more minutes under his belt before he can contribute further.
"When the team is losing 1-0 or 2-0 and I'm put on for ten minutes, when it is a struggle, it is very hard to make an impact," he told the Southwark News.
"You can't expect anything different. I've not been playing for a while and you can't get into form or find your level just by clicking your fingers.
"Whatever the manager says is fine. It's true that I need to work on my fitness because it's a long time since I played regularly.
"I played some U21s games during the international break to help me get fitter.
"But it's very hard when the team doesn't start a game well and you're asked to change the game as a substitute. I know I can do that but in football it’s not all about one player.
"The manager knew I wasn't fit before he took me on so he knows my situation. I feel a lot fitter than I was in the summer but the manager needs results straight away.
"It's difficult for me to change things in ten or 15 minutes."
