Minstermen land loan duo

On-loan Peterborough winger Alex Pritchard is set to have a scan
on an ankle injury sustained at the weekend.

Pritchard, who moved to London Road from Tottenham on transfer
deadline-day at the end of last month, is nursing a knock following
Posh’s 2-1 home win over Leicester on Saturday.

He will undergo an X-ray on the ankle on Tuesday when
Peterborough’s medical team will decide on the best course of
action.

Pritchard is on loan with Darren Ferguson’s side until the end
of the season.

The 20-year-old has impressed for Spurs’ youth and reserve sides
but has yet to make a first-team appearance for the Barclays
Premier League club.

Burton captain McGrath has joined on a one-month loan deal while
Aldershot’s Rankine has returned to Bootham Crescent for the rest
of the season.

McGrath, 32, has made just one start for the Brewers since
recovering from a serious foot injury in November, so heads to York
in search of regular first-team football.

The move will see him link up with his former Tamworth boss Gary
Mills.

The experienced midfielder has made 246 appearances and scored
19 goals for his parent club since joining them in the summer of
2007.

Rankine has found first-team football hard to come by in 2013
and was recently sent out on loan to Blue Square Bet Premier side
Grimsby.

Rankine scored 24 goals in 103 games during a two-year spell
with the Minstermen from 2009 to 2011.

Meanwhile, York striker Jamie Reed has joined Cambridge on loan
until the end of the season.
