So this is it the League One Play Off Final, Blackpool verses Yeovil Town.
Simon Grayson - 'You can enjoy the day because ultimately you might never get to Wembley again, but you certainly enjoy it more if you win.
'I've experienced winning twice at Wembley and losing twice in play-offs and I know which days I enjoyed best.
It's a good day out for the fans and the clubs, but for the players it's another game and we have to win to make sure it's extra special for us.
'There's no point coming away with any regrets, thinking I wish we did this or I wish we did that.
'Go and enjoy yourself, by all means, but the best way to do that is by winning.'
Yeovil have a few injury worries, caption Terry Skiverton is returning from a groin injury but should be able to start. Midfield pairing Chris Cohen and Athony Barry are looked to overcome injuries to play a part in the big match.
The former Sunderland man has still got it, not the biggest or the most powerful forward but the Bristol born player has bagged 9 goals this season. One coming in the game at Bloomfield Road and one in the second leg win over Forest.
Simon Grayson can call upon the services of Chris Brandon after he served a three match ban. Brandon missed the last three games after picking up a straight red for kicking a Scunthorpe player. It looks like Grayson will keep with the same 11 that started both play-off matches.
Keith Southern had a slight knock after the Oldham match but he has recovered in time to keep his place in the middle of the field.
This game is massive for the future of Wes, win and it looks like he will sign up, lose and we might lose the winger. With the wide open spaces and the big stage the Irishman should flourish in the game and could prove to be the match winner.
Marcus Stewart grabbed a late point for the away side back in October, Scott Vernon had given the Seasiders the lead in the second half, but Stewart headed in on 86 to grab a point for Town.
The reverse fixture at Huish Park ended with an away win. Andy Morrell giving the Pool the lead on 57 minutes, Shaun Barker was then sent off for a second booking but the home team were not able to muster up an equaliser.
A win for Pool would break a 70 year record of 10 wins in a row and a return to the top two divisions for 28 years.
