FORMER Ireland midfielder John Sheridan believes Plymouth's late rally on Saturday has put them right back in their League Two play-off tie with Wycombe tonight.

Argyle found themselves 3-0 down at home and surely heading for another season in League Two before goals from substitutes Jason Banton and Zak Ansah in the final minutes kept them dreaming of a trip to Wembley.

They now head to Adams Park knowing a repeat of their 2-0 win there in February would see them reach the League Two play-off final against Southend or Stevenage. And Argyle manager Sheridan says Plymouth's squad believe they can turn things around. "The players are positive," he said. "They think we have got a bit of a lifeline, with the two goals we got at the end on Saturday.

"We looked down and out but we got the two goals and we are right back in it. We really are.

"Gareth (Ainsworth, Wycombe boss) was probably thinking they would be going back to Wycombe 3-0 up, and it would have been really difficult for us, but the tide has turned.

"I have watched the play-off games and some of them have been unbelievable. You just don't know what's going to happen, with lots of twists and turns."
