Crewe Alexandra and Southend United book their places at Wembley with victories in the semi-finals of the Johnstone's Paint Trophy.

Crewe Alexandra will take on Southend United in the final of the Johnstone's Paint Trophy after both teams edged through their last-four clashes this evening.

Southend will make their first Wembley appearance in 83 years thanks to Ben Reeves's late equaliser against Leyton Orient in the semi-final second leg between the two teams.

Reeves's netted in the final minute to make it 2-2 on the night, with the Shrimpers going through 3-2 on aggregate.

Crewe also did it the hard way. Leading 3-0 from the first leg of their semi-final against Coventry City, Alex conceded two late goals to edge through 3-2 on aggregate.

The final of the Johnstone's Paint Trophy takes place at Wembley Stadium on April 7.
