Some notes on Spurs loanee Troy Parrott’s performance against Crewe Alexandra:

Troy Parrott completed 64 minutes of a League One fixture between MK Dons and Crewe Alexandra on Tuesday evening, which MK Dons won 2-1. The Republic of Ireland international scored a really well taken goal during the match, meaning that he has now scored seven goals for MK Dons this season. Parrott started the game out on the right flank, to the right of centre-forward Mohamed Eisa. After some good early work with the ball out on the left flank, Troy Parrott received the ball on the edge of the Crewe penalty area, before curling an effort over their goal. Not long after, a Scott Twine free-kick which was delivered into the Crewe penalty area, was met by Parrott, but his headed effort appeared to deflect off a Crewe defender before going narrowly wide of the goal. In the 24th minute of the game a nice lofted pass over the top of the Crewe defence by Dean Lewington, allowed Parrott to latch onto the ball, after making a good run in behind the defence. The Dubliner controlled the ball really well as he brought it into the Crewe box, before finishing really well past goalkeeper Dave Richards, with a clever lofted finish into the back of the goal, to give Mk Dons the lead.

Troy was getting into some good positions in the final third, and as always he was working hard off the ball. Just before half-time he delivered a good low cross into the Crewe box from the right flank, with the ball just being missed by Eisa inside the penalty area. Troy didn’t complete much off the second half, but shortly before being substituted he dropped deep to receive the ball in midfield before playing a good forward pass towards Kaine Kesler Hayden. However, Kesler Hayden was unable to control the ball on the right flank.
