Alex Pritchard was one of the few Tottenham Hotspur players out on loan to have some joy over the weekend in a largely disappointing weekend for the Spurs loanees.

The England U21 attacking midfielder played the full 90 minutes for promotion chasing Brentford as they drew 1-1 away to Ipswich in the Championship.

Pritchard forced the home side's keeper with a low dive before Jonathan Douglas cancelled out Town's opener. Brentford are in sixth, only four points behind the four teams joint top on 66 points, and remain a point above Ipswich.

Add injury to insult

Elsewhere in the same division, Grant Hall also played the full game for rock bottom Blackpool as the Seasiders lost by the only goal of the game at home to Sheffield Wednesday.

Meanwhile Ryan Fredericks suffered worse luck as his Middlesbrough side lost 2-1 to a rejuvenated Nottingham Forest side and the right back had to limp off the pitch six minutes before half time.

In League One Kenny McEvoy was an unused sub in Colchester United's 2-1 defeat at Rochdale, Dele Alli continues his rehab on his ankle at Spurs Lodge, while in League Two attacker Nathan Oduwa came off the bench again for John Still's Luton, but his introduction on 72 minutes could not stop the Hatters losing 3-2 to ten-man Morecambe.

Colchestser sit 22nd in League One, while Luton are in the League Two play-off places.

And finally, Dominic Ball was an unused sub as Cambridge United drew 1-1 at home to Shrewsbury Town.
