It's up for grabs now: What is at stake in this weekend's football

Phil Brown - can he pull off the Great Escape?

It's the Oscar's this weekend, a celebration of all things movie-making.

There might be a couple of films on the minds of Southend United fans - The Great Escape and Mission: Impossible.

The Shrimpers must win their remaining three games and hope that fellow relegation rivals Barrow mess up.

Promotion for the Canaries was of course secured last weekend.

They have already confirmed that the loan signings of defenders Ben Gibson and Dimitris Giannoulis will become permanent.

Fans may be more concerned whether the new Premier League campaign will feature stars like Todd Cantwell, Emi Buemdia and Max Aaarons - though head coach Daniel Farke insisted that the England Under 21 international Max Aarrons won't be leaving unless the club is satisfied any move would benefit his playing career after the young defender was linked with Everton.
