Millwall loan watch: Keeper King on brink of play-offs

Loan Watch

MILLWALL goalkeeper Tom King is on the verge of the National League play-offs after helping Braintree win 3-2 at Wrexham on Saturday.

Michael Cheek scored twice in the first half but Braintree still needed a late winter from Mitch Brundle for a result that puts them three points clear of Tranmere with one game left.

Braintree play third-last Altrincham at home in their final league game of the regular season next Saturday when a point will guarantee their campaign is extended as they aim for the Football League.

In League Two, John Marquis laid on an assist for Nicky Adams as Northampton stretched their unbeaten league run to a club record 22 games with a 1-1 draw at Yeovil.

The Cobblers have already won promotion to League One.

In National League South, defender Keaton Wood missed Dartford's 2-2 draw at home to Oxford City with a chest infection. Dartford are two points off the play-offs with one game remaining.
