Midfielder Whaler, who signed a professional deal over the summer, has made two appearances off the bench this season while 20-year-old striker Iaciofano also came on as a substitute during Town’s recent victory over Fulham U21s in the Checkatrade Trophy.

Both players have moved to AFC Mansfield for some first-team football until January 1.

“This move will very much help with the development of both players,” said Cobblers boss Keith Curle.
