Fans react on Twitter to Spurs loanee Troy Parrott's display
A number of fans have taken to Twitter to comment on Troy Parrott’s display as the Spurs loanee helped Ipswich Town to a 2-1 win on Tuesday.
Parrott has not had the easiest time since joining the Tractor Boys. The 19-year-old is still awaiting his first goal for the club after switching from Millwall in January.
However, he looks to have found an important role for himself as a number 10 at Portman Road. And he produced a very impressive display this week as Ipswich made it back-to-back wins for the first time since October as they beat Accrington Stanley.
Parrott won a penalty during the first-half. He was brought down when he was through on goal on the edge of the six-yard box.
Unfortunately for the Tottenham teenager, he was not only denied the chance to open his account for the club, but he then also had to watch as James Norwood had his effort saved.
His wait for a goal may go on, but many of those who watched the game had plenty of positive things to say about Parrott’s performance in the win.
As shown by Whoscored.com, he made two tackles, won two aerial duels and made three interceptions. No player on the pitch made more interceptions.
Admittedly, there was a little criticism on social media. But his energy and work-rate has been lauded by many, and that will certainly encourage those looking on from North London.
Here is how some of those who watched the game reacted to Parrott’s display…

Thought Parrott was our best player, his touch and control were above everyone else on the pitch.
Need Norwood to do more, but that hasnt changed from his first match imho.
Fantastic result though, really feels like every game is massive right now #itfc
