We ask some of Sky Sports Football League TV team to tell us their most memorable play-off final matches and moments. In an exciting weekend of upcoming action, Hull and Sheffield Wednesday face off for a place in the Premier League in Saturdays Sky Bet Championship showdown, while the League One final pits Barnsley and Millwall on Sunday and Mondays League Two finale sees Plymouth take on AFC Wimbledon - you can watch all games live on Sky Sports.From Dean Windass volleying home for his hometown club Hull City to Clive Mendoncas unforgettable hat-trick for Charlton, there have been some iconic play-off final moments over the years. But what have been the highlights for our TV talent? Football League analyst Ian Holloway: QPR 1-0 Derby, 2014Apart from the ones I was directly involved with, Im going to pick QPRs victory over Derby. I lost a play-off final with QPR in 2003 and to see all the Rs fans that day heartbroken was tough, so it was a real thrill for me to see them get their day in the sun at Wembley.The game itself was a bit drab until Gary ONeil got sent-off for QPR and then Derby started to knock it around. It looked only a matter of time before they struck. However, football can produce incredible moments and Bobby Zamora scored a dramatic winner from what was probably QPRs first attack since they went down to 10 men. His first touch was sublime and his second was even better - hammering it into the top corner. I leapt off of my chair and screamed the house down as there was no way coming back from that. Highlights of the 2014 Championship play-off final between QPR and Derby County Sky Sports co-commentator Don Goodman: Blackpool 3-2 Cardiff, 2010Theres been many, many, amazing play-offs over the years. The 5-5 draw between Swindon and Sheffield United in the semi-finals last season was probably the best semi-final, but the most memorable final for me was Ian Holloways Blackpool final against Cardiff. It was the first final I covered where both teams went at it and played without fear, which was totally opposite to the first few finals I commentated on. They were all tense affairs but this one was different - it was a sensational occasion. Highlights of the 2010 play-off final between Blackpool and Cardiff as Ian Holloway led the Seasiders to the Premier League Sky Sports commentator Bill Leslie: Swansea 4-2 Reading, 2011Ian Holloways Blackpool had opened it all up a year earlier which was fantastic as wed seen a few very nervy 1-0 finals previously, where the team that were less entertaining had progressed. Swansea continued Blackpools theme in the final a year later with a style of football which was wonderful to watch.What will always stick with me from that game was the Swansea crowd singing Hymns of Arias with Scott Sinclair wheeling away celebrating his hat-trick - it was spine-tingling stuff. Weve had so many teams recently winning promotion that have been on the brink of extinction or financial oblivion. The story arcs that are involved with the Championship final are just tremendous.
