MILL­WALL boss Ian Holloway ad­mits get­ting Nicky Bai­ley back from in­jury would be like get­ting a brand new sign­ing for the club – but still can­not put a time-frame on the mid­fielder’s re­turn.

The 30-year-old was in­stru­men­tal as Mill­wall avoided the drop last term, but has been side­lined since Septem­ber with a trou­ble­some calf in­jury.

How­ever Bai­ley was back for the un­der-21s as they beat Bris­tol City 7-3 last week.

Holloway said: “He’s a fan­tas­tic bloke and I re­ally be­lieve we wouldn’t still be in the Cham­pi­onship if it wasn’t for him.

“Hope­fully I can get him fit for a few games later on. We shouldn’t be promis­ing things but that would be like sign­ing an­other player.

“When we get him to 90 min­utes for the un­der-21s, then he should be ready to come back in. We’ve been very care­ful with him.”
