IAN Holloway says it is a matter of time before Italian loan star Diego Fabbrini chips in with goals and assists.

Fabbrini, on loan from Watford, is yet to score in seven appearances for the Lions but has wowed fans with his silky skills and mazy runs.

The 24-year-old almost created a goal for Aiden O'Brien against Fulham on Saturday but after bamboozling a defender, his cross inches too high.

"He's quite exciting and wonderful to watch," said Holloway.

"I'd pay to watch him myself to be honest because he's been a breath of fresh air. He can play in any one of two or three roles.

"He's got to get that end product where he slots someone in or hits the target but that will come because he's a fantastic player."

Holloway also wants to ensure Fabbrini tracks back when necessary.

"What we've got to do is know where he's going to end up when we lose the ball because he's got to be in area where he can help the team," added the Millwall boss.

"He's a wonderful lad and I'm delighted we've got him. I've got to work an area to keep him in because he does float – so when we lose it, where is he defensively?"

    Prob that that simple seeing as udinese hold his contract and they paid 3 million euros for him. They would want to recoup as much as possible and seeing as he will not have gone unnoticed ... It won't be us
