Former Huddersfield Town loan left-back Graham Carey could hold the key to promotion for Plymouth Argyle.

That’s the view of Sky Sports pundit Danny Higginbotham ahead of Monday’s League II play-off final against AFC Wimbledon at Wembley.

Irishman Carey played 26 times, scoring twice, on loan to Town from Celtic during the 2010-11 campaign.

These days the former St Mirren and Ross County player, 27, is a midfielder.

Higginbotham watched Plymouth beat Portsmouth and Wimbledon overcome Accrington Stanley in the semi-finals.

The former Manchester United, Stoke City and Sheffield United defender said: “I think it will be a very interesting game.

“What we have seen with both teams is that they are adaptable.

“Wimbledon played different systems against Accrington and Plymouth can mix it up as well.

“They have both got very talented players going forward.

“With Plymouth you look at the likes of Carey – who is the man that they want to get on the ball, (Jake) Jervis, (Gregg) Wylde and (Jamille) Matt up front.

“They will create a lot of problems going forward, but Wimbledon are the same.

“They have (Tom) Elliott and (Lyle) Taylor and then you have got (Adebayo) Akinfenwa as well.

“Also, on a big pitch like Wembley, the pace that both teams have got could hopefully make for a really open game.

“If you look at the semi-finals I think both teams deserved to go to Wembley.

“I thought both of them were strong and finished the games very well.

“It will be a really interesting game with two teams who are very well matched.”
