ARGYLE are poised to sign defender Lee Molyneux on a five-month contract.

The full-back has impressed manager Peter Reid with his performances during pre-season and has a chance of featuring against his old Southampton on the opening day.

Molyneux is also a former Everton trainee and Reid believes he could form an exciting left-side partnership with Onismor Bhasera.

"He [Molyneux] has looked a decent player and I've been impressed with him," said Reid.

"He's quick, naturally left-footed and it gives me a chance to put Baz in front as well. Those two can interact and he has got beyond people. He did that a couple of times against QPR.

"He's got a chance of playing against his old club. As an ex-player, it is one of the things you'd like to do. He hasn't had a pre-season, so there is more to come."
