Northampton Town have completed the loan signings of Sheffield United defender Sean McGinty and Fleetwood Town winger Matty Blair.
Both players have joined on initial month-long loan deals.
Republic of Ireland under 21 international McGinty started his career at Manchester United, although he never made a first team appearance at Old Trafford.
Meanwhile, Blair only moved to Fleetwood Town last summer following an impressive spell at York City.
