In their weekly update on the Tottenham players who are out on loan, Football.London have relayed the praise that Troy Parrott has been receiving in the Lancashire press.
After opening his account for Preston in their 4-1 win over Huddersfield Town in the EFL Cup last week, Parrott put in another impressive 90 minutes in the 1-0 win at Luton at the weekend and got 88 minutes under his belt in the 0-0 home draw against Rotherham.
Football.London relayed Lancs Live‘s player ratings from the game against Luton, with the publication giving the striker a rating of 8/10 and writing about his display:
“A tireless and selfless display from him up top. Was a focal point for PNE all game and linked play up fantastically. Never stopped making himself available and running for the team. Had a chance to kill the match at the end.”
Meanwhile, Dane Scarlett played 63 minutes for Portsmouth on Tuesday as they came back from a goal down to thrash Cambridge United 4-1 at home.
Although Scarlett is yet to open his account for the League One club, Pompey fans seem to have already taken to him as they sang the youngster’s name after he was substituted.
What a graft that was from 18 year old Dane Scarlett who gets a standing ovation and his own song as he walks off.
No goals yet but they’ll come.
We’ll let him milk that one 😂

Football.London also revealed that Joe Rodon was involved in a sloppy piece of play that resulted in the Monaco scoring as Rennes played out a 1-1 draw at home on Sunday.
The centre-back played a pass back to substitute goalkeeper Dogan Alemdar, who took an extra touch to control the ball, which allowed Breel Embolo to take advantage to score the equaliser. The Wales international is yet to taste victory since his completing a loan move to Roazhon Park.
Finally, Alfie Whiteman got another 90 minutes under his belt for Swedish side Degerfors, who played out a 1-1 draw at home to Vargbergs on Sunday.

It seems like Parrott is having no trouble at all in making the step up from League One to the Championship. What is quite encouraging about the 20-year-old is that he always seems to get rave reviews even when he fails to hit the back of the net, which is often not the case with forwards.
