Peterborough United striker Lee Angol has joined Conference leaders Lincoln City on loan until the end of the season.

The transfer window is shut for Football League clubs, but teams outside the top four divisions can still bring people in.

22-year-old Angol has made 17 appearances for Posh this season, but has only scored once.

The former Luton Town forward won't be able to feature in the Imps' FA Cup quarter-final at Arsenal later this month though having already appeared in the competition for Peterborough.

Port Vale midfielder Anthony Grant has joined Peterborough United for an undisclosed fee.

The 29-year-old, who has also played for Southend United and Stevenage earlier in his career, has signed a two-and-a-half year deal.

Despite chairman Darragh MacAnthony promising a "quiet day", Grant is the second new arrival following Craig Mackail-Smith's loan move.

He is a really difficult opponent. He has been captain at Port Vale, he is a leader on and off the pitch and I think he will bring a lot to the dressing room.

He has an excellent passing range, he dictates games and he will help us moving forward.

– Grant McCann, Peterborough United manager

Peterborough United signed striker Craig Mackail-Smith for a third time.

The 32-year-old has re-joined Posh on loan from League Two side Luton Town for the rest of the season.

He is stuck on 99 goals for Peterborough and will be hoping to bring up his century in his latest spell at the ABAX Stadium.

Mackail-Smith has struggled to break into the Luton team this season, with manager Nathan Jones going for other options up front instead.

I am delighted to have him. I feel as if the squad need one or two older heads and he brings that.

He also has a real passion for this football club, you can't buy that. I feel like Craig has a point to prove.

– Grant McCann, Peterborough United Manager

Meanwhile, 19-year-old striker Freddie Hinds has joined Championship side Bristol City for an undisclosed fee.

League One Peterborough United couldn't produce an FA Cup shock at Premier League leaders Chelsea.

First half goals from Pedro and Michy Batshuayi gave Posh the proverbial mountain to climb at Stamford Bridge, a task which got tougher when Willian made it 3-0 after the break.

Chelsea had John Terry sent off before Tom Nichols gave Posh fans something to cheer by scoring with 20 minutes left.

But Pedro ended any hopes of a dramatic comeback by scoring his second and Chelsea's 4th.

Although Peterborough have lost both their previous FA Cup encounters against Chelsea - conceding five goals on each occasion - followers of the League One promotion chasers are determined to enjoy their day out in West London.

And many have the same hope as the club's Director of Football, Barry Fry- to hold Chelsea to a draw and earn a money-spinning replay at home.

"I've been in football for 56 years and it's the first time I'm going and wanting a draw. I've never wanted a draw. But this one, it would be lovely to get them back at our place."
