Parrott picked up the injury at Carrow Road in a win against Norwich City, where he was a second-half substitute but had to be taken off two minutes after netting the winner in the 80th minute of the game.


That was Parrott’s first goal in the Championship for the Lilywhites, with his path to the Tottenham starting eleven currently blocked by the likes of Harry Kane, Heung-Min Son, Dejan Kulusevksi and Richarlison.



Lowe has admitted he is gutted that the injury has struck and ruled Parrott out of action for a lengthy period, though he does think the World Cup break will help.


The 44-year-old tactician hopes to have the Spurs loanee back fit after the World Cup when the season resumes, while admitting that Parrott is in good spirits.



I think the World Cup’s come at a good time for Troy because he will miss a large part, but the fact of the matter is we’ve got that break”, Lowe told Preston’s official site.


We won’t have him for the foreseeable future, but after the World Cup when we’re 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 of the team, he’s been fantastic.


He’s alright, he’s in good spirits now.


“He’s got over it, and we’ve just got to make sure he’s alright for the next time he’s available.”


Parrott has two goals from 15 appearances in all competitions for Lowe’s team so far this campaign and it remains to be seen what decision his parent club take with regard to his recovery.
