Brought in after being released by Aston Villa ahead of the 2019/20 season, Australian midfielder Lyden’s Town career has been seriously restricted by injuries, but has looked bright when he’s been able to take the field.

Lyden made his debut in central midfield alongside Michael Doughty on the first day of the season and was a fixture in midfield until being injured at Leyton Orient in September - where he was replaced by new signing Anthony Grant. A combination of his own fitness and Grant’s exceptional form made it difficult for Lyden to string appearances together, although he also played alongside Doughty & Grant on occasions. Lyden scored his first Town goal at Northampton in February shortly before the suspension of the season.

As Town returned to League One for the 2020/21 season, Lyden’s injury record worsened, playing only 49 minutes before December. By the time he returned to fitness, Wellens had left for Salford and John Sheridan was occupying Town’s technical area. His first start since December came in the excellent televised victory over Ipswich in January, a rare bright spot in an otherwise dismal Town season.
