Southend United ready for one last play-off push

It's last chance saloon for Southend United this weekend in their bid to break into League One play-offs.

Agonisingly, they're still a point outside the top six going into their final game of the season against Bury on Sunday but defeat for Millwall could open the door.

Elsewhere, Northampton Town midfielder John-Joe O'Toole has signed a new two-year contract ahead of their game against Gillingham at Sixfields.

This weekend's other fixtures

  • Ipswich Town v Sheffield Wednesday (The Championship)
  • Leeds United v Norwich City (The Championship)
  • Bolton Wanderers v Peterborough United (League One)
  • Northampton Town v Gillingham (League One)
  • Walsall v MK Dons (League One)
  • Accrington Stanley v Luton Town (League Two)
  • Cambridge United v Crawley Town (League Two)
  • Leyton Orient v Colchester United (League Two)
  • Yeovil Town v Stevenage (League Two)

Cambridge United strikers Uche Ikpeazu and Adam McGurk have both been ruled out for the rest of the season.

Ikpeazu dislocated his shoulder in last weekend's defeat to Portsmouth and will undergo surgery on Thursday, while McGurk tore his hamstring in training earlier this week.

The news will come as a blow to the U's play-off hopes, with the club currently three points outside the top seven with just two games remaining.
