“Was unlucky”- Championship boss gives verdict on Tottenham loanee after his eventful debut

Preston boss Ryan Lowe gives verdict on Tottenham Hotspur loanee Troy Parrott after debut

Ryan Lowe handed Tottenham Hotspur loanee, Troy Parrott, his Preston North End debut against Wigan Athletic. The game ended 0-0 as both teams shared the spoils after an eventful game on Saturday.

The 20-year-old striker has joined the Championship club for this season and looks to continue his development at Deepdale. Despite having the tried and tested Ched Evans in his ranks, Lowe instead went with Parrott in his starting XI.

Preston faced the Latics at the DW Stadium in the opening gameweek of the Championship. Parrott started up front and had a couple of chances to score throughout the game.

Speaking about his performance after the game (h/t Lancashire Post), Lowe explained why he chose to start the young centre-forward. He was brought off for Evans in the 72nd, but the latter was sent off later in the match.

“…you get a striker of Troy’s quality – I thought he was unlucky not to score, he had a couple rifle past and I thought one in particular on his left foot was going to rifle into the bottom corner.”His movement and his intelligent play is very good.”

Parrott blanked on his debut but he did have some chances to score. Lowe believes the young Spurs loanee will come good with time and with not much competition for starts at Preston, we can expect to see him in action quite often.

“He’ll create chances, his overall stats say that he’ll get loads of chances it’s just about taking them… I thought his movement was great, he got across his man and then the ‘keeper makes a good save. His link up play and all-round game I was pleased with.”

Troy Parrott
Troy Parrott is one of the brightest talents coming through Spurs’ ranks in recent years.

Spurs, sooner or later, would need to find a new centre-forward when Harry Kane leaves. Parrott is nine years younger than the England international and is already playing regularly for the Republic of Ireland, where he has been capped 15 times.

Playing in the Championship is a very good opportunity for him to prove his worth. Richarlison’s arrival at N17 could close the door to some extent with regards to the youngster’s pathway in the first-team set-up, but it doesn’t mean Parrott can’t force his way into Antonio Conte’s plans.
