Peterborough winger Alex Pritchard has been ruled out for up to six weeks with an ankle injury and has returned to parent club Tottenham for treatment.

Pritchard sustained the injury during the 2-1 win over Leicester City on Saturday and underwent a scan earlier in the week to determine the extent of the damage.

The 19-year-old received rave reviews for his performances in Spurs' NextGen Series campaign and signed a new two-and-a-half year deal at White Hart Lane in January before joining Peterborough on loan.
