Tottenham Hotspur loan report: Pritchard scores, Hall stars

White Hart Lane 3

We round up the latest news from Tottenham Hotspur's young hopefuls, who are out on loan.

Alex Pritchard – Brentford

Alex Pritchard has picked up where he left off last season, after scoring for Brentford in their 2-1 victory over Blackpool last night.

The talented winger was one of the stars of League One last season with Swindon Town and he appears to have taken the step up in class to Championship level in his stride.

The 21-year-old managed to grab the equalising goal for the Bees, by cutting inside and curling a shot beyond Joe Lewis in the Blackpool goal and he already has his sights set on scoring more goals for his loan club.

“It was my first Championship goal and I'm sure there's more to come – and now I want to get my first home one,” he said.

Grant Hall – Birmingham City

The young defender continues to get game-time in his loan spell at Birmingham City and was involved in the side’s 2-2 draw with Ipswich Town yesterday.

The draw means that Blues are unbeaten in three home games, after not winning at St. Andrews in the entirety of 2014 before the weekend, but they may be frustrated that they allowed a late equaliser stop them claim all three points.

Hall has played in all three of Birmingham’s league games so far and was typically dominant in the air – winning five headers last night. He may have to work on his distribution before making the grade at Spurs, though, as he only managed a 47% passing accuracy rate.

Kenny McEvoy – Peterborough United

Kenny McEvoy wasn’t able to build upon his first Football League goal after picking up an injury in Peterborough United’s game against MK Dons at the weekend.

McEvoy scored a deflected effort in the first-half of Posh’s League One clash with MK, but suffered an injury in the same game and was ruled out of their midweek clash with Sheffield United.

In ‘Baby Bale’s’ absence Darren Ferguson’s men lost 2-1 and it put a stop to their 100% start to their league season.

Shaquile Coulthirst – Southend United

Shaquile Coulthirst was unable to make an impact, despite playing for 82 minutes of Southend’s match against AFC Wimbledon.

The Shrimpers were not able to beat their fellow League Two promotion hopefuls at Roots Hall last night and Coulthirst didn’t have as much of an impact as he would have liked.

He was subbed off late on, with Jack Payne coming on, as Phil Brown’s side searched for an equaliser.

Jordan Archer – Northampton Town

Jordan Archer watched on as Northampton Town slumped a 2-0 defeat against Portsmouth last night.

The young goalkeeper has been unable to displace Matt Duke in the Cobbler’s goal since singing and he was, therefore, helpless to stop either of Pompey’s two strikes which provided them with the three points.

Will Pritchard make the grade at White Hart Lane?
