Former Spurs goalkeeper Paul Robinson believes Troy Parrott is now ready to take League One by storm after opening his account for Ipswich Town last weekend.

Parrott has endured a difficult campaign so far, with his loan spell at Millwall failing to work out the way the striker would have wanted.

Spurs made the decision to recall the teenager in January and sent him to Ipswich for the second half of the season after he found himself struggling to regular game time in his final few weeks at the Den.

The Tottenham academy graduate made a bright start to his spell at Portman Road and has demonstrated his ability to link up play while also displaying his tremendous work rate.

However, the 19-year-old was unable to find the back of the net for Paul Cook’s side despite putting in some fantastic performances.

That finally changed on Saturday as Parrott netted the only goal of the game in Ipswich’s win over Plymouth, with the striker admitting after the match that he is confident there are more goals to follow.

When asked if the striker could now explode following his first goal for the club, Robinson told Football Insider: “Yes, I think that is the case.

“The reason he went out on loan is to get some goals at first team level to give him the confidence to play in Spurs’ team.

“It didn’t work out for him at Millwall so they had to bring him back and replace him, if you like. Now he is at Ipswich and he’s in the team which is great.

“He’s got his goal and I fully expect him to perform week in, week out now and add a few more to his name because he’s an amazing talent.”

Parrott has shown during his spell at Ipswich that is a lot more than just a goalscorer, possessing fantastic technical ability and the intelligence to link-up play. However, as well as he was playing, goals are what strikers are usually judged by and there is no doubt that his strike against Ipswich will do his confidence a world of good.
