Yorkshire derby games are never anything but fiercely contested battles, so what a match we can all look forward to at Wembley between Huddersfield Town and Sheffield United. I can easily see this npower League 1 final attracting 90,000 fans.

Looking back at the semi-finals I just about think we have the two most deserving sides in the showpiece.

The Sheffield United versus Stevenage tie was a dour affair and it all got a bit tetchy at times but these were two, well organised fully committed teams. Sometimes two clubs can be so well matched that it ends in a stalemate and for almost 180 minutes that's exactly what we saw. Thankfully for the Blades, Chris Porter broke the deadlock but there weren't many opportunities for either team.

Although I just about think Sheffield United warranted the win, Stevenage must be congratulated on their performance this season. For a club that attracts such low crowds, and is therefore financially at a disadvantage they have done magnificently.

I just hope they don't fall off a cliff now. Everyone at Stevenage has worked so hard to get into this position but the fact they haven't gone up might affect them. Gary Smith also has a busy summer in prospect convincing his star players to stick with him, rather than be attracted to the many suitors that are sure to make transfer enquiries. He'll have a real job to keep this squad together.

The other losing semi-finalists MK Dons will be feeling pretty sad too, as they put up a fabulous fight at the Galpharm Stadium on Tuesday evening.

On home turf they allowed themselves to be stifled by Huddersfield and couldn't grumble too much at the 2-0 loss, but in the return I felt they were very unlucky not to force the match into extra-time. They played brilliantly.

It's a pity for John Gorman that they haven't made it to Wembley too. He's retiring now and would have loved a farewell underneath the giant arch in north-west London. It wasn't to be, but John can look back on is career and take some magical memories with him.

I've met John Gorman along the way at various clubs and he's always made himself available for a chat. If you wanted a loan player, he'd promise to have a word with the manager to help make it happen, and he'd never be anything other than amenable. When I think of John, I recall a friendly, helpful, good guy and I'm sure everyone at MK Dons will miss him greatly.

Huddersfield Town have the star man though, don't they?

Over the two legs Jordan Rhodes proved to be their match winner yet again with two excellent finishes, even though he didn't produce his strongest displays of the season.

Jordan's just one goal away from the 40 mark now and I hope he makes it because he's been brilliant all season. I've heard reports that a £6million bid has already been rejected and that he's valued at £8million but who's to say that his price tag won't go up even more if he fires the Terriers to the Championship and scores 30 plus goals for them at that level next year?

He's got a tricky decision to make this summer, but for the club it's paramount that they win promotion if he is to stay.

Looking at these two clubs, losing is not an option for Sheffield United or Huddersfield Town. I know and like Danny Wilson and Simon Grayson, but one of them will be devastated if they don't triumph.

If ever there was a winner takes all clash, this could be it.
