TROY | DELIGHTED TO GET OFF THE MARK

13 March 2021

"If you look back at the goal you can see my positioning and how I was trying to read where the Plymouth player would play the ball. Thankfully that's where it went"

Troy Parrott said Town deserved to win this afternoon's game against Plymouth and that he was delighted to net his first professional goal.

The forward, on loan at Blues from Spurs, popped up in the fourth minute with a cool finish after a mistake at the back by Argyle.

His early effort proved to be enough as Town took the spoils with a 1-0 victory.

"I'm delighted to get off the mark with my first professional goal," the 19-year-old told iFollow Ipswich.

"We definitely deserved to win the game as well. If you look at the chances in the first half we could have been two or three up at half-time.

"It's only natural in a game that when a team is losing they'll have a spell where they're on top and push forward but I think we dealt with them well.

"If you look back at the goal you can see my positioning and how I was trying to read where the Plymouth player would play the ball. Thankfully that's how it went. I had to get the first touch right and then the finish was easy.

"We started really well and the gaffer really wanted us to get after the opposition. We did that and then in the second half we saw it out professionally.

"Like I said I'm really pleased with the goal but most importantly we got the three points. I'm confident there are more goals to come and all I'll continue to do is try and get into the right positions."
