Addicks duo join Grimsby

Grimsby Town have moved to bolster their survival bid by making a twin swoop for the Charlton pair Andy Todd and Martin Pringle.

Todd has arrived at Blundell Park on a month's loan and is set to be joined by Swedish international Pringle ahead of Saturday's game at Nottingham Forest.

It will give me a chance to get some first-team football under my belt again
Charlton's Andy Todd

Neither player currently figures in the first-team picture at the Valley, prompting Grimsby player-boss Paul Groves to make his move.

"I'm very pleased to be coming to Grimsby on loan," Todd told the club's website.

"It will give me a chance to get some first-team football under my belt again and I'm looking forward to it.

"Obviously every match is like a cup final for Grimsby at the moment and I'm certainly looking to do well for the team and myself.

"Paul Groves spoke to me at the back end of last week but I felt I needed another reserve-team game with Charlton before I made my decision.

"Groves was at the Charlton reserve match on Wednesday night and after the game I agreed to the deal."

Todd, a 750,000 buy from Bolton in November 1999, has made five Premiership appearances for the Addicks this season.

Pringle has not figured this term, but has scored eight times in the top-flight and Groves will be looking to the 31-year-old striker to improve the worst goal-scoring record in the First Division.
