Troy Parrott admitted his joy at ending his goalscoring drought for MK Dons in style on Wednesday and thanked his teammates and the fans for supporting him.

Parrott had been in exceptional form for MK Dons over the past few months, showcasing his exemplary vision and technique while operating as number ten.

However, the striker’s lack of goals was starting to become a concern, with the Spurs academy graduate having failed to find the back of the net since October. The 20-year-old finally ended his drought on Wednesday as the Dons beat Cheltenham Town 3-1.

The Republic of Ireland international progressed superbly into the penalty area to head home with a looping cross to put Liam Manning’s side ahead early in the first half.

He then put the result to bed late in the game by producing a arrowed finish into the bottom corner from a tight angle late in the second half.

Parrott admitted the two strikes were huge for his confidence after what he’s been through over the past few months.

The on-loan Spurs striker told MK Citizen after the 3-1 win: “I got a lot of support from the fans, the gaffer and the boys. Seeing how happy everyone was to see me score was really overwhelming.

“They have so much faith in me and I can’t ask for much more. Let’s hope it continues now. I had plenty of chances to score and it didn’t come but I’m in good shape tonight. For my confidence is huge.

“The second goal, I didn’t even have to think about it, I just hit it and it went in. It’s a feeling that never gets old, especially so long without a goal. You could see what it meant for me.

Parrott certainly deserved those goals, given the level of performance he has put in since the start of the year. The 20-year-old has shown this season that he is ready to make the leap to the Championship and I would expect many second-tier clubs to express their interest in signing him on loan this summer.
