Ireland striker Troy Parrott is set to be ruled out for the foreseeable future after picking up a hamstring injury with Preston North End at the weekend.

Troy Parrott scored his first championship goal of the season for Preston, but injured himself celebrating the winner and had to be replaced after pulling his hamstring in Preston’s 3-2 win over Norwich City.

The 20-year-old, who is on loan from Spurs, will now miss the Republic of Ireland’s November friendlies against Norway and Malta.

Parrott has struggled for goals this season due to injury and lack of opportunities, and this will come as another disappointing setback for the striker, who would have hoped to kick on from his first league goal of the season.

Speaking on Troy Parrott’s injury, Preston manager Ryan Lowe revealed the injury is not as bad as first thought.

“He’s had his scans and whatnot. Its not as bad as we first thought, but we’re obviously in dialogue with Tottenham Hotspur as well now because he’s their player.

We won’t have him for the foreseeable future, but after the World Cup when we are back in action, hopefully he’s back fit and ready, so it’ll give us enough time not to rush.

I’m gutted for Troy because obviously he just scored his first championship goal as well. Although he’s been out the team, he’s been fantastic.”

When fit and firing, Parrott has shown he is a special talent with huge potential, but his progress has not gone as one would’ve hoped.

After a difficult spells at Ipswich Town and Millwall, Parrott enjoyed his most successful spell on loan with MK Dons, scoring 10 goals in 47 appearances for the league one side.
