The 19-year-old has been leading the Tractor Boys’ attacking line, along with James Norwood, starting regular league games following his loan move from Premier League giants Spurs earlier this month.


Parrott is yet to open his account for the Suffolk outfit and clocked 80 minutes in his side’s 2-1 win over Doncaster Rovers on Saturday.



Tractor Boys custodian Holy is impressed with how Parrott has taken to life at Portman Road and insists it is only a matter of time before the teenager scores in Ipswich colours.


Holy has backed the Tottenham starlet to go on a goalscoring run in the league once he registers his first strike for his new club.



“I think he’s the kind of striker we needed”, Holy was quoted as saying by the East Anglian Times.


“With Nors [Norwood] as well we have two very aggressive, very passionate, cheeky strikers.


“Honestly, I wouldn’t like to defend against them. I’m really pleased I am on their side!



“He [Parrott] is still very, very young, but he’s a clever, smart, cheeky player.


“He’s not afraid to go one-v-one or two-v-two.


“It’s only a matter of time before Troy scores, in my opinion.”


Ipswich are next in League One action against Accrington Stanley on Tuesday evening in an away clash.
