Loan watch: Tottenham youngster shining through difficult spell

Ryan Fredericks is on loan at Championship strugglers Millwall and has impressed during a difficult time.

With Tottenham's defence seemingly prone to mistakes, it might brighten the Monday of a few fans to hear that one of their young right-backs is continuing to impress in the Championship

Ryan Fredericks faces high competition for places at White Hart Lane at the moment, but with Kyle Walker still out injured and Kyle Naughton less than impressive over recent weeks, he'll be feeling confident about his chances of making an impression on Tim Sherwood. 

Fredericks did feature for Tottenham this season, in the Europa League and won the penalty from which Soldado scored his hat-trick goal. 

Circumstances are different at Millwall though, with Fredericks helping their fight to stay in the second tier of English football. There's still time for Millwall but the worry may be that as well as winning their games they have to hope for other team's to slip up. 

Frederick's is Millwall's highest rated player based on statistics with a rating of 7.25, only bettered by Kieran Trippier and Simon Francis from right-back. 

The 21-year-old's cause is certainly being helped by a series of Tottenham defensive blunders, and being that Sherwood is already a fan of Fredericks, he could well be welcomed into the first team next season. If Sherwood is not there, Fredericks determined character will see him fight for a place ahead of the England right-back regardless, though luck may well play a part. 

Do you think Fredericks should be given a chance in the Premier League
