Loan watch: Norton-Cuffy heading to Wembley

Brooke Norton-Cuffy in action for Coventry City

Brooke Norton-Cuffy's Coventry City booked their place in the Championship play-off final with a 1-0 aggregate win over Middlesborough.

Our academy defender played the majority of the second leg at Riverside Stadium on Wednesday as Gus Hamer's 57th-minute curler sent the Sky Blues to Wembley Stadium in style. Coventry will now face off with Luton Town for a place in the Premier League next season.

Norton-Cuffy, who was recently called up by England to play in the U20 World Cup, will join his Young Lions teammates in Argentina after the play-off final on May 27.

Another Hale End graduate broke records at the weekend as Folarin Balogun became the first American player to score 20 goals in a single season in one of Europe's top-five leagues. Balogun's strike briefly gave Reims the lead over Angers in Ligue 1 before the visitors equalised.

Elsewhere in Ligue 1, Nuno Tavares did not feature for Marseille in their 2-1 loss to Lille but the side remains in touching distance of clinching Champions League football next year. 

In a crunch game in the Austrian Bundesliga, Arthur Okonkwo's Sturm Graz suffered a narrow loss to title rivals RB Salzburg. Our 21-year-old goalkeeper made a number of saves to initially deny the league leaders but the defeat now means the title is virtually in Salzburg's hands.

Pablo Mari featured for the entire game and picked up a booking as Monza beat Sassuolo 2-1 in Serie A. The Italian side have two games left to play against Lecce and Atalanta.  

Nikolaj Moller played the full 90 minutes for Den Bosch in their final game of the season in the Dutch Eerste Divisie, losing 3-0 to De Graafschap. Our striker's loan spell in the Netherlands has now come to an end. Alex Runarsson was in goal for Alanyaspor's 4-0 victory over Kayserispor - a vital three points in an exceptionally tight race for survival in the Turkish Super Lig. 

Over in Scotland, Alex Kirk made a miraculous recovery from an ankle injury to rejoin Ayr United's squad as they vie for promotion to the Scottish Premiership. Ayr fell to a 3-0 loss in the first leg of the play-off semi-final but Kirk will hope to feature for the decider on May 26.
