Sydney Roosters star Mitchell Pearce expects rookie fullback Latrell Mitchell to have a big finish to the NRL season after the youngster was cleared of any serious damage to his knee.

Mitchell failed to finish last Thursday's loss to Canterbury after aggravating a knee problem, but Pearce said the 18-year-old pulled up well over the weekend and is expected to play against Parramatta on Friday.

"He should be okay. He's been training well and after that try, hopefully we can see a bit more of that until the end of the year," Pearce said on Monday.
