Parker was magnificent again in Saturday's 3-1 defeat despite the Chelsea might in midfield. He held his own and topped off a superb display with a late consolation that had everyone in the Boleyn Ground out of their seats.
Parker told whufc.com: "We can take some positives out of today's game. We were playing a very good side in Chelsea and we always knew it was it was going to be a tough game. We go into the Stoke game with positives and look to reproduce them in that game.
"Morale is high. It has been a difficult start for us. We are not kidding ourselves. We would like points on the board. We have had a difficult start but at the same time we need to win games. We know that and we are trying our hardest with everything we are doing in training.
"We are going into games to win the match. At the moment it has been a bit tough. The quicker we can get some points the better really."
