He's been great so far. Played a nice ball in the box for The Posh's best chance so far. @WindyCoys is providing updates as well for those who can't watch.

It was a very good performance, but in all honesty the quality of the game was of a very low standard and both would fit in quite well in league 1. The amount of times Pritchard was in loads of space but wasn't passed to was irritating, but when he did get on the ball he showed some great close control and a good eye for a pass.

was very annoying when there was a simple forward ball on to him but the billy big nuts around him just tried 50 yard Hollywood balls. some very nice skill/touches and passes though.

Thought he was very impressive. He's got great feet and was weaving through defenders with ease at times. Made a really incisive through ball as well.

Looked by far the best player on the pitch technically, as you'd expect.

His style of play is very reminiscent of Eden Hazard. He's got that same hoppy style while being on the ball, and he knows how to use a turn of pace and quick feet to make space for himself. Also showed a great eye for the pass today. He found soooo much space today was continually ignored by his teammates. It's probably a reflection of the lack of quality in vision of a struggling Peterborough squad, but from what I saw, he looks the part.

Hopefully he can have a really solid end to the season, a great pre-season that gets him noticed and maybe a PL loan from a club who falls in love with what they see.

With La Liga struggling the way it is, we should perhaps look at loaning players there tbh

I dont know if im being bias but I thought he looked class for them bare in mind it was his first senior start. He put in some nice through balls with clever feet, Got a wack in the face for his troubles, and did any of you see when he brought down a big hoof by the byline, great touch like when he played against Barca. I too was annoyed when people never passed to him, we need to get him a good loan next season.

Missed the game but the updates sound promising, hope he kicks on from here. Shame there is only one game left.

Started again today away at Palace. Playing quite well, lovely footwork, nutmegged a defender on the turn at one point. Nearly scored a minute ago. Mendes-Laing got to the byline and fizzed the ball across the 6 yard box, Pritchard came in late, outstretched but couldn't reach it.
