The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO -

THIS could be a huge point for Wy­combe in the chase for au­to­matic pro­mo­tion at the end of the sea­son.

They were eas­ily sec­ond best on the day, fail­ing to deal with the pace and power of Southend for most of an en­ter­tain­ing game.

But Gareth Ainsworth’s side came away with a point, show­ing the de­ter- mi­na­tion needed in the fight for pro­mo­tion.

The Chair­boys never gave up, and that trait could well see them play­ing in League One next sea­son if they can also muster the re­quired luck that ev­ery side at the top of the ta­ble needs.

As for Southend, if they fail to make au­to­matic pro­mo­tion, Phil Brown will cer­tainly look back on this draw as a huge turn­ing point.

They dom­i­nated pro­ceed­ings and had some glo­ri­ous chances but a mix­ture of poor fin­ish­ing and sloppy de­fend­ing saw them take home a point and not three.

They will need to show more if they are to join Wy­combe in the au­to­matic pro­mo­tion places.
