League One play-off final, Saturday, Wembley, 3pm, live on Sky Sports 2

THIS tough as teak Yorkshire derby should have been about Jordan Rhodes v Ched Evans.

Instead it's about whether 40-goal Rhodes can work his magic one more time and guide Huddersfield into the Championship.

Rhodes netted first in both legs of Huddersfield's semi-final victory against MK Dons but Evans was behind bars as the Blades struggled to a 1-0 aggregate win against Stevenage.

The second-leg win was their first since 29-goal hitman Evans was jailed for rape and his absence could at the end of the day deny the Blades' promotion.

Without him they look pretty weak up top while Huddersfield are aware Rhodes will put them away at Wembley if they give him chances.

So it's a Huddersfield win for me and they are a biggest 7-4 at boylesports to secure the prize inside 90 minutes and make it third-time lucky in the play-offs.

Danny Wilson’s Blades are favourites at 10-11 for promotion and 17-10 at BetVictor to win inside 90 minutes.

Rhodes is 4-1 at Ladbrokes to score first and 6-5 with Coral to net at any time. If it's not him consider his team-mate Lee Novak at 9-4 to score with bet365.

The League One play-off tomorrow features the sides who finished sixth and seventh, Cheltenham v Crewe.

Crewe have finished the season with an unbeaten run of 18 games but I reckon they'll come a cropper against the Robins who look to have the greater firepower.

Cheltenham are a best 15-8 at firms such as BetVictor to win in 90 minutes.

    couldnt agree anymore paul, fancied them all week, and since evans has been jailed utd have struggled to score goals, unlike huddersfield and rhodes, surpsrised with the price, but suppose it is a final, this could be rhodes last game possibly, cos theres a few “BIGGER” clubs watching him.
