Northampton Town have signed Millwall winger Gregg Wylde and Crystal Palace's Hiram Boateng on loan deals until the end of the season.

25-year-old Wylde has struggled for game-time since joining Millwall from Plymouth in the summer, while 20-year-old Boeteng has recently returned to Palace following a frustrating spell at Bristol Rovers.

Meanwhile, Cobblers midfielder Joel Byrom has left the club after his contract was terminated.

Gregg is a winger with a lot of pace.

He plays wide on the left, he is very direct and he is a player who can take defenders on and create opportunities for others and he operates very much like an old fashioned winger.

Hiram is a highly rated player, who already has a fair amount of experience in the EFL and he has the quality to make a real impact here.

His parent club think very highly of him and we are delighted to welcome him to Sixfields.

– Rob Page, Northampton Town manager

Next week's local derby between Peterborough United and Northampton Town has been made all-ticket for home supporters.

The decision was made on safety advice due to the large traveling support coming from Northampton.

The match at the ABAX Stadium will take place next Tuesday (18 October).

Northampton are close to selling out their total allocation, which includes part of the Motorpoint Stand, and as a result, the decision was taken on safety advice to make the game all-ticket for home supporters too.

This is to ensure that the stadium is a safe environment for Peterborough United and Northampton Town fans to enjoy what should be an entertaining local derby.
