Alex Pritchard reacts on Twitter to Brentford reaching the play-offs

Tottenham Alex Pritchard

The Tottenham Hotspur loanee posted a team selfie after a big win.

Brentford have reached the Championship play-offs! And they couldn't have done it without Tottenham loanee Alex Pritchard.

The 21-year-old has scored and assisted goals aplenty for the Bees this season and has been simply sensational in the second tier.

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino simply can't ignore him next season. But, focusing on the now, the north London side will have to wait for Pritchard to return, as his involvement with Brentford continues into the play-offs.

Mark Warburton's side won 3-0 against already-relegated Wigan Athletic to clinch their place in the top six (as Derby County floundered).

And Spurs loanee Pritchard was at it again, scoring a wonderful goal for Brentford as they kept their Premier League dream alive.

What a season it's been for the 21-year-old - and no wonder he and his team-mates celebrated so joyously.

Hard work still remains if they are to make it to the top flight, with Brentford now facing a play-off semi-final double-header against Middlesbrough. For Pritchard, though, it would appear a Premier League campaign must be in order for him next term regardless. Tottenham could certainly do with a talent like him in their first team...
