Southend Play For Promotion At Wembley
Southend United are heading to Wembley later for the Biggest game of their season.
They're up against Wycombe in the League Two play-off final, with promotion to the third tier of English football, League One, the prize.
If they do it, it'll be the first time in five years.
Around 20,000 Southend fans will be there, kick-off is 5.30pm.
Manager Phil Brown says, "It's really exciting, it's fantastic to be involved in, but the stakes are high, may the best team win.
"There's something about Wembley, it's just a joy to be there, you've achieved something by getting there, but obviously it's all about 90 minutes of football, and making sure you come out of that feeling like a winner."
Midfielder Michael Timlin says he can't wait to walk out on that Wembley pitch, "It's every boy's dream to be playing at Wembley. It's going to be a fantastic game and hopefully it'll be one that we come out on top. There's so much riding on it, not just for us, but for the club and for the fans."
