He said: “It’s a fantastic achievement for the football club, just to get to Wembley.
“It is 20 years since Plymouth Argyle have been there and we are going back.
“A manager needs help from everybody around about them.
“I have had that from the players this season, the staff at this football club and the supporters as well.
“We are all going back to Wembley and that’s what you call unity. The football club has got unity.”
Plymouth won 1-0 in Sunday’s second leg courtesy of a stoppage-time Peter Hartley goal.
Adam’s side included former Old Firm pair Graham Carey and Gregg Wylde, while on loan Hibs defender Jordon Forster had to be content with a place on the bench.
Adams added: “It was a great ball in from Graham Carey and a great header from Pete at the back post.
“We are always difficult to deal with from set plays because of our height and delivery.
“It got to that stage in the game where it looked like it was going to go to extra-time but the players always keep believing.
“That’s something we have drilled into them. They have got very good energy levels.
“They started off the pre-season on the running track and it has prepared them well for the end of the season.”
