Plymouth Argyle playmaker Graham Carey says he is "making up for lost time" at the Devon club.

The Irishman has impressed for the League Two leaders this season, scoring five goals in 13 appearances.

He joined the Pilgrims from Ross County in July, having played 63 games for the Scottish Premiership club and spent most of his career north of the border.

"At 26 I don't think I've played as many games as I should've so I think I'm quite fresh," Carey told BBC Sport.

"I've been wanting to get down to England for the last few years so it's kind of making up for lost time."

Carey's only previous experience in England was a loan spell at Huddersfield in the 2010-11 campaign.

He missed Argyle's 2-0 midweek Football League Trophy win over rivals Exeter, but is "very hopeful" of recovering from a knee injury in time to face Notts County on Sunday.

"It's such a big club, I think it's a step up from where I've come from," Carey added. "I think the quality of players here could do very well in the Scottish Premiership.

"The club are on their way forward now and I think it's down to us as players to keep that development going."
