Peterborough winger Alex Pritchard has been ruled out for up to six weeks with an ankle injury.

The 18-year-old Tottenham loanee sustained the injury in the 2-1 victory over Leicester at London Road on Saturday and has returned to White Hart Lane for treatment.

The youngster, playing just the second game of his career, underwent a scan earlier in the week to determine the extent of the damage.

It is another injury blow for Posh, who recently lost on-loan Manchester United defender Scott Wootton for six weeks with a hamstring problem.
