Some notes on Spurs loanee Troy Parrott’s performance against Boreham Wood:

Dublin born Republic of Ireland international and young Spurs loanee Troy Parrott completed 81 minutes of Millwall’s two-nil FA Cup third round victory against Boreham Wood, on Saturday afternoon. Parrott (18) played off lone centre forward Kenneth Zohore, mainly operating down the left hand side, as Gary Rowett’s Millwall side lined up in a 3-4-3 formation. Early on in the game Millwall created a good chance after Parrott played a one-two with Zohore before firing a low effort just wide of Boreham Wood goalkeeper Nathan Ashmore’s left hand post, from quite far out. After a Boreham Wood free-kick was intercepted Millwall broke forward down the other end of the pitch as Parrott picked up the ball and went forward showing good speed, before eventually playing the ball through to Tyler Burey whose first touch let him down. Looking quite sharp early on in the game, and soon after trying to play Burey through he managed another attempt at goal. Dan McNamara’s ball into the Boreham Wood box from the right was headed down by Zohore to Parrott, but his first time effort on goal was deflected behind for a corner kick off of David Stephens. After receiving Ryan Leonard’s pass Parrott travelled into the oppositions penalty area before curling the ball narrowly wide of the goalkeepers left hand post. A Scott Malone corner kick came to Jake Cooper who headed the ball down to Troy Parrott in the box, and with his back to goal his flicked effort towards the goal was cleared off of the line by Kane Smith. Millwall took the lead soon afterwards as Parrott received the ball, before flicking it to Malone who then found Zohore who finished well from inside the box. The Irishman volleyed wide a cross a couple of moments later, in what was his last piece of action from the first half.

The beginning of the second half saw Parrott have an effort on goal from the edge of the Boreham Wood box deflected behind for a corner. He then took a free-kick in a promising position, which went high over the Boreham Wood crossbar, before threading a pass through to substitute Tom Bradshaw (it took a deflection off of Femi Ilesanmi) which put the Welshman through on goal. Parrott then delivered a cross into the box which was cleared, before a couple of minutes later receiving a pass from Ryan Woods and latching onto it inside the oppositions box, but his touch let him down and it ran through to the goalkeeper Nathan Ahsmore.
