Plymouth Argyle have signed Peterborough defender Scott Griffiths until November after a spate of unfortunate injuries left Pilgrims boss Carl Fletcher without defensive cover for Tuesday's Johnstone's Paint Trophy tie with Aldershot Town.

The 26-year-old will be available up to and including Argyle's npower League 2 clash with Burton Albion on Tuesday November 6 and can play in all cup competitions.

The left-back has a wealth of League Two experience, having won the league while on loan at Chesterfield in the 2010/11 season.
