Adam McGurk fired Burton to Wembley as they edged out Southend in a dramatic Sky Bet League Two play-off semi-final.

McGurk's goal separated the sides after the first leg and Burton doubled their advantage early on through Marcus Holness, only for Phil Brown's Shrimpers to hit back through Ryan Leonard and Anthony Straker.

But former Aston Villa youngster McGurk slammed in his 12th goal of the season midway through the second half to make it 2-2 on the day and secure a 3-2 aggregate win and a final date with Fleetwood a week on Monday.

Matty Blair dealt former club York a major blow by scoring the only goal to give Fleetwood a slender 1-0 advantage in this rescheduled Sky Bet League Two play-off semi-final first leg.

Blair, signed by Fleetwood when out of contract last summer after turning down a new deal from York, bundled home a 50th-minute winner almost two years after scoring the goal that sent the Minstermen back into the Football League.
