Loan Watch: Ryan Lowe gives injury update on Tottenham Hotspur loanee Troy Parrott
Preston North End manager Ryan Lowe has given an update on the injury of Tottenham Hotspur loanee Troy Parrott. The striker is on loan at the Champions club for this season.
The striker came off the bench to score the winner for his side in their 3-2 win against Norwich City in the Championship last Saturday. It was also his first goal of the season, and second in all competitions.
“He’s had his scans and whatnot. It’s not as bad as we first thought, but we’re obviously in dialogue with Tottenham Hotspur as well now because he’s their player, so Jacko [Matt Jackson, physio] is on with them. I think the World Cup’s come at a good time for Troy because he will miss a large part, but the fact of the matter is we’ve got that break.”
💬 “We won’t have him for the foreseeable future, but after the World Cup when we’re back in action, hopefully he’s back fit and ready.”— Preston North End FC (@pnefc) October 11, 2022
Wishing you a speedy recovery, Troy! 💙

Such news will definitely come as a blow to both clubs. One of the best youngsters around, it would be disappointing to see the player miss the majority of the season due to injury.
But as Lowe has mentioned, the World Cup break next month will benefit the 20-year-old. The striker will have time to rest and work on his fitness, while the club games are on hold.
It remains to be seen if the striker can be fit after the tournament in time. But, for now, the Spurs youth player will miss his side’s game for the rest of this month.

Preston are eighth on the table with 19 points and will have a total of eight Championship games before the World Cup break. We hope that Parrott can recover fast and help his side to promotion by banging in goals.
