The men in charge of this weekends Play Off Finals at Wembley will be recording personal milestones.

When Clive Oliver takes charge of the League Two final and Michael Oliver takes charge of the League One Final they will be the first Father and Son to be in charge of a play off final.

‘It’s fantastic I got the game,’ the younger Mr Oliver said while his father, Clive said, ‘I had my fingers crossed that I would get a game and to get to ref at Wembley is fantastic and it’s going to be a brilliant experience.’

Mike Dean is the man in the middle for the Championship Final and is only the second referee to be asked to referee a final twice, the first being Graham Poll.

‘Initially, it was a bit of a surprise,’ Dean told the Football League Official Site. ‘I reffed the final three years ago and you don’t usually get asked twice. It’s nice to be involved in a game like this. I shall treat the game like any other game and that way won’t put myself under any pressure.’
