Welcome to The Sportsman's LIVE football blog, where we will be bringing you all the biggest updates across the biggest stories throughout the day. There will be plenty of reaction to last night's Premier League drama in which Everton survived, but the jubilant scenes were tarnished in the following pitch invasion. A handful of fans antagonised Crystal Palace manager Patrick Vieira which led to a violent altercation. Elsewhere, Port Vale beat Swindon Town to book their place in the League Two play-off final and there were also some unpleasant scenes there involving fans attacking opposition players. There will also be build-up to tomorrow's League One play-off final between Wycombe Wanderers and Sunderland.

Stay with us you won't want to miss it.
