The Evening Standard have revealed that Troy Parrott is set to return to action for Millwall following the conclusion of this month’s international break.
Some Spurs fans were understandably excited to see what Parrott could do in the Championship after the striker completed a loan move to Millwall during the summer.
The Republic of Ireland international endured a frustrating spell at Tottenham last season, being overlooked by Jose Mourinho even when both Harry Kane and Son Heung-min were out injured.
He would have been hoping to prove his goalscoring prowess at the Den this season but things have not at all gone according to plan for the teenager.
Parrott initially suffered a quad injury in pre-season that kept him out of Millwall’s first few games of the campaign before picking up an ankle injury in his debut in the Carabao Cup clash against Burnley.
The striker has not made a single appearance since but is now expected to be back after the two-week international break starting after this weekend’s fixtures.
Millwall will also be without striker Kenneth Zohore, who is expected to miss around two months of action with an injury.
Speaking about the injury situation, manager Gary Rowett said: “When you think about the likes of Troy Parrott and Ken Zohore, you’re hoping they could be the difference in the final third for us – or at least some very good Championship options.
“Both have been unavailable, pretty much, for the games.
“Troy isn’t far off but to lose Ken for that period of time – particularly after he performed so well at Preston – we’re going to have to crack on without him for the time being.”
