The 20 year-old is on loan from Lazio and has become a regular with the struggling Serie B club, but this was the first time he found the net for his new side.

Socceroos' Ikonomidis learning from Serie B's school of hard knocks
Australia youngster Chris Ikonomidis believes taking the Tim Cahill path to the top by facing up to the toughness of Italy’s second tier, much like the Socceroos icon did in England in his formative years at Millwall, will make him a stronger professional in the future.

Ikonomidis' goal made it 2-1 before a stoppage time equaliser earned a point for the visitors, who remain the relegation playoff places.
