Millwall boss Neil Harris has been impressed with Fred Onyedinma’s first-team progress.

The 21-year-old forward has started just seven league games this season, but starred in recent away wins over Reading and Birmingham.

Onyedinma scored his first ever Championship goal at St Andrew’s last weekend, which highlighted his undoubted talent.

Harris told News Shopper: “I’ve been really pleased. Fred’s a great lad, nothing’s changed for me, he works extremely hard every day.

“He’s got unbelievable talent, attributes in the modern game, pace and power. He’s a very, very good finisher.

“For whatever reason he hasn’t scored as many goals as he should’ve done at times. But as a 21-year-old, getting a taste of Championship football this season and having played in League One for the last couple of years, he’s doing it the right way.

“What’s pleasing for me is that the fans want him to succeed, yes they get frustrated with him. His team-mates probably get a little bit frustrated with him because he is so raw.

“But he has got the attributes and it’s another realisation against Birmingham about what he can do and we saw what he can do from a starting position at Reading.

“We also saw him in those 10, 15 minutes against Cardiff where it didn’t quite happen for him. But that’s going to be him.”

Onyedinma will be pushing for a starting berth when Millwall travel to Burton on Saturday.
