IAN Holloway believes Millwall fans have taken an instant liking to Aiden O'Brien and Lee Gregory.
O'Brien, 20, made his league debut and summer signing Gregory scored his first goal for the Lions against Birmingham in midweek.
And Holloway was pleased with the reaction both players received from the crowd.
Holloway said: "I know what the fans want.
"Aiden coming on gave everybody a lift because they love an underdog and a young player. They love Gregory already and that's great too.
"It took Steve Morison a long time to settle down and score a goal and how well did he do for this club? And Gregory already has one.
"I'd just like to reiterate that the only reason I wasn't playing Gregory was because he was injured and he's gone from training twice a week to playing up three divisions.
"Does he look ready for it now? Yeah – and he scored, so I'm delighted for him.
"The fans here want to see people come good and that's me all over.
"I haven't been jumping at loan signings because Aiden is a goalscorer and if he responds to me in the right way, he could be a goalscorer for the first team and play in my team.
"He's old enough and he's potentially good enough. He has lots of skill. It's great to have some youth and enthusiasm."
