As AFC Wimbledon and Plymouth prepare to do battle for a place in League One, we bring you the ultimate guide to the Sky Bet League Two play-off final - live on Sky Sports. The Dons are seeking a place in the third tier of English football for the first time, while Derek Adams Pilgrims are chasing a return after a five-year absence. So how did they make it to Wembley, who could be key on Monday and what does Sky Sports Football League expert Ian Holloway expect? Read on to find out... How did they get here?Both sides confirmed their places in the League Two play-off spots with a few games to spare - saving the drama for their semi-final fixtures. AFC Wimbledon played Accrington - who narrowly missed out on automatic promotion - in their tie and took a vital 1-0 first-leg lead after Tom Beere struck in the 93rd minute. Highlights from the second leg of the League Two play-off semi-final as Accrington took on AFC Wimbledon Stanley raced into a 2-0 lead during the second leg at the Wham Stadium, but after Adebayo Akinfenwa dragged the Dons level on aggregate, it was Lyle Taylor who netted an extra-time winner to seal a 3-2 victory. Plymouth Argyles Jamille Matt celebrates scoring during the play-off semi-finals Plymouth, meanwhile, drew 2-2 in their first-leg tie against Portsmouth - Jamille Matt scoring with an overhead kick - before a 91st-minute winner from Pete Hartley at Home Park fired the Pilgrims into the Wembley final. Highlights from the second leg of the League Two playoff semi-final between Plymouth and Portsmouth Play-off previousThe Dons boast plenty of non-league play-off experience, winning finals in the Conference South and Conference Premier, the latter result - a 3-2 win over Luton on penalties - sealing their place in League Two at the end of the 2010/11 season. Plymouth have three play-off appearances under their belts. They lost to Burnley in the semi-finals in the 1993/94 season but won the Division Three play-off final against Darlington in 1995/96 under the guidance of Neil Warnock.They also made it to the League Two play-off semi-finals last term, but were beaten 5-3 on aggregate by Wycombe Wanderers.Head-to-headThe two sides have met three times so far this season - twice in the league and once in the Johnstones Paint Trophy - with Plymouth just edging the contests. There was pandemonium as Plymouth secured their League Two play-off final spot They won the first League Two meeting on the opening day of the season and the cup tie - coming from 2-0 behind to win 3-2 - while AFC Wimbledon took the spoils during a 2-1 win at Home Park in April.

Neal Ardley is set to fulfill a childhood dream when he leads his side out at Wembley As much as playing at Wembley, I dreamed as a kid of leading a team out at Wembley. I always wanted to be a manager and it is one on my bucket list to do this, which was why I was fairly emotional, he told the clubs official website.There is a great spirit around the place. Since Christmas the bond between the first-team, our club, and the fans has been immense.

Derek Adams celebrates after the second leg at Home Park Its a fantastic achievement for the football club, just to get to Wembley. Its 20 years since Plymouth Argyle have been there, and were going back, he said.Im delighted that the players, their families and the supporters have got an opportunity to go and have a good day out at Wembley, but you only have a good day out at Wembley when you win.Team newsArdley will not choose his starting XI to face Plymouth until Saturday after a couple of niggles were picked up in the semi-final win over Accrington.Connor Smith (neck) and Jon Meades (ankle) have both trained all week with no fresh injury or suspension worries but George Francomb is unlikely to feature due to a knee injury. Adebayo Akinfenwa had a huge influence from the bench during the semi-finals Adams has a full compliment of players to choose from at Wembley, with only long-term absentees Ryan Brunt and Josh Simpson remaining out.Reuben Reid will also be vying for a recall to the starting line-up following his own return from injury, but Fleetwood loanee Jamille Matt looks set to continue up front after his fine performances in the semi-finals, including a brace in the first leg at Fratton Park.Holloways key menPlymouth - Graham Carey Graham Carey is full of talent says Ian Holloway To get 11 goals from midfield at any level is impressive.

Terry Collins is coming back confident better days lie ahead. "Maybe we can finish what we started," he said. The manager received a two-year contract extension Monday with a club option for 2016, a move the Mets announced one day after finishing 74-88 for the second consecutive season. Collins previous deal was about to expire, but it became increasingly clear down the stretch that he likely would return. "In many ways, Terry had an outstanding year," general manager Sandy Alderson said. "The team never quit, continued to play hard, continued to play with the resources it had at hand and finished as well as we could have expected." Fielding an inexperienced lineup ravaged by injuries and trades, the 64-year-old Collins kept New York competitive all summer without many of his top players -- including team captain David Wright, All-Star ace Matt Harvey and closer Bobby Parnell. Still, the rebuilding Mets were unable to overcome a 25-40 start and limped to their fifth straight losing record since moving into Citi Field. They edged Philadelphia for third place in the NL East after coming in fourth the previous four years. "We saw some bright things that happened this year with some of our young players. Obviously, weve got some outstanding young pitching coming," Collins said. "Were going into spring training with very, very high expectations. Its time to put some wins on the board." New York did just that during an encouraging stretch that began June 18, the day touted pitcher Zack Wheeler was called up from the minors and leadoff hitter Eric Young Jr. was obtained from Colorado. In a doubleheader dubbed "Super Tuesday" by a city tabloid, Harvey and Wheeler pitched the Mets to a sweep at NL East champion Atlanta. From there they went 33-26 through Aug. 20, while Youngs much-needed speed sparked a stagnant offence on his way to the National League stolen base crown. But the following Monday, Aug. 26, Harvey was shut down with a partially torn ligament in his right elbow that left his status for next season uncertain. He hopes to avoid Tommy John surgery with a strengthening and throwing program, though the Mets dont sound too optimistic. "Certainly losing Matt was a shock to the system, and I think emotionally weve all had to recover from that a little bit," Alderson said. "Even if Matt doesnt have the surgery, its going to affect our plan." The plan all along was to compete for a playoff spot in 2014. With about $40 million in player salaries coming off the payroll, the Mets expect to be active in free agency. Desperate for productive bats and a steady shortstop, New York could eye outfielders Shin-Soo Choo and Nelson Cruz. "Im really excited about what we might be able too do this off-season," Alderson said.dddddddddddd "Certainly well have more payroll flexibility than weve had since Ive been here." Alderson, Collins and chief operating officer Jeff Wilpon are part of the brain trust headed to Florida to begin organizational meetings Tuesday. Alderson said next years budget will be set early on. The Mets own the 10th selection in the June draft, which means they wouldnt have to forfeit it to sign a top-tier free agent who receives a qualifying offer from his previous club. The top 10 picks are protected, eliminating a significant concern. Eager to upgrade in many areas, the Mets nevertheless will keep in mind the bloated contracts they gave to injury-prone Johan Santana and Jason Bay. "Those are cautionary examples of what can happen," Alderson said. "Its great to say, well, we have financial flexibility and then blow it on players deals that dont work out and put yourself right back in the same situation we were in before. At the same time, at some point youve got to go for it. So, having flexibility is great. But at some point youve got to put yourself on the line. And I think what were going to try to do is balance the level of our commitments with the desire to continue to maintain some flexibility going forward. Not just next year, but years after that." Trading some of their ballyhooed minor league pitching might be one way for the Mets to add offence. But that route can be risky. "I find it tough sometimes to trade young guys. And I think that fans identify with the young guys," Alderson said. "Having said that, were at a point now where we are in a position to make a deal for an established player (by) giving up some resources. But we have to be careful that we dont turn a strength into a weakness. And with Matt out, it makes it a little more difficult to give up the two or three guys that we know are right on the cusp." Alderson was encouraged by New Yorks .500 record over the final 100 games and acknowledged that was a significant factor in the decision to keep Collins, who is 225-261 in three seasons as Mets manager. His entire coaching staff also was retained. "Weve got the base. Now weve just got to make sure guys play up to their potential," Collins said. "We have the players to do it. Theyve got to buy into it." The team went 41-40 on the road this year, but both men were dismayed by a 33-48 mark at home that left the Mets a dubious 103-140 at Citi Field over the past three seasons. "I think part of it is the player mix," Alderson said. "Part of it has got to be something to do with the home environment here, whether thats here at the ballpark, whether its in the clubhouse, whether its on 45th and Sixth Avenue. I dont know. There are a variety of factors that were going to have to look at hard, because we cant allow this to continue."
