Ipswich Town’s first-team coach Matt Gill was left raving about on-loan Tottenham youngster Troy Parrott for his display on Tuesday night.
Parrott, who joined League One club Ipswich on loan in the January window, has been an ever-present in their team since he signed.
The 19-year-old centre-forward started during his side’s 2-1 victory against Accrington Stanley in a League One match.
He didn’t get on the scoresheet, but ran his socks off on the game and also won a penalty for his team that was converted from the spot by a teammate.
Ipswich coach Gill gave immense praise to the Spurs teenager for his midweek display.
“I’m desperate for Troy to get a goal but he’s done so well for us,” Gill said, as quoted by Ipswich’s official website.
“His work rate is absolutely fantastic and the quality is there for everyone to see. I was really impressed with his performance again and he probably covered more ground than anyone.”
There are extremely high hopes for Parrott at Spurs, which is why they decided to send him to Ipswich to play regularly after he struggled for minutes in the first half of the campaign with Championship outfit Millwall.
He’s yet to open his goalscoring account for Ipswich in his first seven appearances, but he’s doing everything right.
The two-time capped Republic of Ireland international was a goal machine at youth level for Spurs and he just needs one hopefully to spark a run.
It certainly seems like the January decision over him was a wise one, as he feels the benefit of playing all the time.
