FATHER’S Day could come early for some this season.
Both Andy Rhodes and Ray Lewington are hoping to enjoy a double celebration come May 26, the date of the League I play-off final at Wembley.
Rhodes is the goalkeeping coach of already promoted Sheffield Wednesday and the dad of Town’s 38-goal hot shot Jordan.
Meanwhile Lewington, left, freshly appointed to the England coaching team by new national boss Roy Hodgson, is the father of long-serving Dons skipper Dean.
And keeping a close eye on Dons keeper David Martin will be dad Alvin, the former West Ham and England defender and Southend manager who is now a pundit for Sky and radio station talkSPORT.
