Millwall winger Jed Wallace has praised Troy Parrott’s ability and admitted that he knew the youngster possessed great quality after training with him within the first 15 minutes.

Injury problems have prevented Parrott from hitting the ground running at Millwall after moving to the club on a season-long loan deal in the summer.

After making his first Championship appearance off the bench against Cardiff last Saturday, the striker was handed his first league start for the club in the 1-1 draw against Reading on Wednesday.

The striker got more than an hour under his belt against the Royals before making way for Jon Daoi Boovarsson.

Although Parrott failed to get on the scoresheet, Millwall boss Gary Rowett admitted that he was pleased with the striker’s display (London News Online).

Wallace also claimed that the Tottenham loanee did well on his first start and confidently asserted that the striker will show his quality with more games under his belt.

The wide man told News at Den: “I thought Troy was brilliant, you can see the quality he brings, the footballing brain he has – he’s only going to get better.

“He’s 18 and he’s playing that well already, on the back of being out for eight weeks.

“Troy was someone that within the first 15 minutes of his first training session I knew the quality he had, the intelligence he has.”

Parrott kept his place in the Millwall starting eleven for yesterday’s 0-0 draw at Birmingham City with the forward featuring for 63 minutes before being replaced by Matt Smith.
