Troy Parrott has suffered a possible injury setback for Millwall in their pre-season victory at Southend United on Saturday.
The 18-year-old has enjoyed an ideal start to life with the Lions – netting in both of their pre-season matches, including in yesterday’s game at Roots Hall as you can see here.
Parrott started on the bench against the Shrimpers, but was introduced at half-time and got himself on the scoresheet just 12 minutes later. However, it wasn’t all plain-sailing for the Republic of Ireland striker, who was replaced less than 20 minutes later with a suspected muscle problem.
Lions boss Gary Rowett didn’t comment on the injury, but just hours after Ireland manager Stephen Kenny told the Irish Sun that Parrott will be monitored ahead of their Nations League opener against Bulgaria on Thursday, the teenager was replaced in the squad.
“He has travelled this morning and will have a scan in the afternoon to see the extent of it,” Kenny admitted.
“He just pulled up with a tight muscle. It’s a short space of time so we’ll have to see how it is.”
Depending on the result of his scan, Parrott could face a race against time to be fit for Millwall’s season-opener against Stoke City at The Den on 12 September.
