Some notes on Spurs loanee Troy Parrott’s performance against Charlton Athletic:

Spurs player Troy Parrott (on loan at MK Dons) completed the whole of the MK Dons versus Charlton Athletic League One fixture, on Tuesday evening. The Republic of Ireland international started the match to the right of centre-forward Connor Wickham. Parrott’s first involvement of the match (MK Dons won the game 2-0) came fairly early on. After Conor Coventry made a really good lofted pass through to Parrott, who had made a run into the Charlton penalty area, Parrott tried to bring the ball down, but he couldn’t control the ball as he would have hoped, and the Charlton goalkeeper Craig MacGillivray managed to gather it in time. However, if Troy had been able to control the ball as he would have wished, then he would have been through on goal. During the latter stages of the first half he had switched flanks with Scott Twine. The Dubliner enjoyed a good start to the second half, and not long into the half, Parrott received the ball out on the right flank. He then went on a run at pace, with the ball, before trying to play a through-ball towards Scott Twine, but former Spurs player Chris Gunter managed to get to the ball in time, to stop Twine from being through on goal.

After going on a good run with the ball towards the Charlton box, Parrott laid the ball off to Connor Wickham, who tried to score with a powerful low effort, which was saved by MacGillivray, before Kaine Kesler Hayden finished from close range. As the half went on Troy was drifting out more to the left flank. His last real involvement of the game, was a defensive one. Parrott was already in the Charlton half when he sprinted all the way back to the Mk Dons half to help stop a Charlton forward move. Parrott showed great pace and desire to eventually block Elliott Lee’s effort on goal.
