Carl McHugh and Plymouth Argyle were due to find out last night who their opponents will be in the English League Two play-off final.

McHugh, from Leitirmacaward, featured for Plymouth in Sunday's dramatic win over Portsmouth in their semi-final second leg.

Peter Hartley's stoppage time goal gave Plymouth a 1-0 win (3-2 on aggregate), to send them on their way to Wembley.

They will meet the winners of the other semi-final between Accrington Stanley and Wimbledon.

Accrington, managed by former Sligo Rovers manager, John Coleman, trailed 1-0 on aggregate going into last night's second leg.

After five seasons in League 2, Plymouth are now just 90 minutes away from promotion.

And McHugh, who has enjoyed a fantastic season at Home Park, will have his part to play in the decider at Wembley on Monday, May 30th.

It won't be his first taste of action at the famous venue.

He went to Wembley twice with his former club, Bradford City, at the end of the 2012/13 season.

At the end of a memorable Capital One Cup run during which they Bradford beat Arsenal and Aston Villa, he played in the 5-0 defea to Swansea City in the Capital One Cup final.

He was then an unused substitute in Bradford's 3-0 League Two play-off final victory over Northampton Town.
