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.
