Holloway savours winning feeling after Millwall beat Forest

IAN Holloway hopes Saturday's 1-0 win over Nottingham Forest can prove to be a turning point in Millwall's season.

Ricardo Fuller struck late on to snatch a priceless victory for the Lions at the City Ground.

And Holloway said afterwards: "Winning is a wonderful feeling and it's so long since we've had it.

"That's now four points from the last six – we looked solid and like we knew what we were doing.

"We had to come to a team that had just beaten Derby away and battle for our lives.

"There were a few problems evident because we haven't played together enough but I'm delighted for the players in the dressing room. They've worked really hard.

"We kept a clean sheet with ten men in our last game and hopefully we can turn the corner now.

"Everyone of the players deserves a huge pat on the back. They've all played their part and I'm delighted for everyone.

"Hopefully we can get some confidence from that to take into the next few games. I'm sure our fans will love the effort everybody gave."

Millwall's supporters were chanting Diego Fabbrini's name after the Watford loanee produced another standout performance.

"It's great to see what he can do," said Holloway. "If there was a myth about what makes a Millwall player, he's broken that, hasn't he?

"He's as slight as a feather but he's got all sorts of skill. Hopefully we can integrate him into the team and he can enjoy his football."

      @fred: I agree. But let's not forget how by being attacking (Fabbrini) resulted in their players not being able to attack confidently.

        @SE14: Fabrini is the best player I've seen in a millwall shirt for years! Yesterday he ran the show

      @mfcjon:
      Nice thought, but we can't afford him mate. Unless we smash our record transfer fee of £800,000, and we won't.... However I reckon a bid of £1.3-£1.5 million would get him signed up. He cost watford over £2 million so they won't be giving him away cheaply. If he performs well for us and watford don't go up, they will more than likely keep him anyway. Enjoy him while it lasts! Because this will all end in tears when people realise we can't afford or won't spend, on that sort of quality.

        @82wall: does also depend on FFFP and Watford have a lot of stars who they are paying loads for. They may be keen to offload him, bit I agree that he will cost > £1M
