It was job done for the Shrimpers on Sunday as they claimed a 1-1 draw at Stevenage in the League Two play-offs. Phil Brown’s team came from behind to ensure they simply need to beat Graham Westley’s team at Roots Hall to reach Wembley.

Southend should have the beating of Boro on Thursday, with the Essex side boasting the stingiest home defence of the entire division. They have conceded just nine goals in their twenty-three home matches this term and should be capable of shutting out Stevenage.

Southend’s last four home matches have ended in a victory for United, while they have also shut out the opposition on each occasion. Barry Corr should pose problems in attack, with the visitors short of a lethal marksman and likely to struggle to create chances in this game.
