The 21-year-old, who spent a spell with Portsmouth earlier this season, is poised to go straight into their squad for the Devon derby against Plymouth Argyle at Plainmoor on Tuesday night.

Marquis' arrival comes after fellow forward Paul McCallum's loan deal from West Ham was ended by injury after three goals in four starts.

"He (Marquis) is not as tall as Paul McCallum, but he is more mobile," manager Alan Knill told the Herald Express. "He is also aggressive, with a good work ethic.

"He has played in winning Championship teams at Millwall, and he comes here with something to prove.

"Paul has done well for us, but he has had a back problem, which he's been playing with for a couple of games, and he wants to go back to West Ham to get it sorted out."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
