Derby County's Kelle Roos is set to become the seventh goalkeeper Plymouth Argyle will use this season after joining the club on emergency loan.

The 25-year-old has joined after Luke McCormick was injured on Thursday - less than a week after returning.

Argyle's other keepers Kyle Letheren and Robbert te Loeke are also out.

Norwich's Remi Matthews and Hull's Will Mannion were also at the club on loan, while youth team goalkeeper Michael Cooper has featured as a substitute.

Matthews was forced to return to his parent club in November after himself being injured, while Mannion's emergency loan was ended after a week following McCormick's initial return to fitness.

Roos is set to make his debut at home to Gillingham on Saturday, with Argyle boss Derek Adams previously describing the injury situation with his keepers as "ridiculous".

Grant repaying manager's faith in him

Meanwhile, Argyle forward Joel Grant says he is working hard to show he is worthy of his regular place in the side.

Grant has started 16 of Argyle's 20 league games following his summer move from Devon rivals Exeter City.

The 30-year-old was used more as a substitute for City last season as they reached the League Two play-off final.

"Credit to the manager, he's put his faith in me and it's something I'm working hard to prove to him that I deserve a place," he told BBC Devon.

Grant, who has won 14 caps for Jamaica, feels he is getting better in his first campaign in the third tier since he left Yeovil Town in the summer of 2015.

"I believe I'm starting to improve, I know my role in the team a bit better than when I first came," he added.

"It's always difficult when you come to a new club because you are applying different tactics from the manager or different game plans.

"I'm impressed with how I've settled in now, I'm starting to find my feet and feeling a lot more confident."

Plymouth are still bottom of League One, but are just three points away from leaving the relegation zone, and he feels Argyle will not stay there much longer.

"They say the table doesn't lie, so there's a reason why we're there," Grant said.

"But it's reasons we can change and I think we are slowly changing. We're working very hard day in, day out, and we'll have a much better second half of the season."
