Some sad news before we look at the other games that are coming up.

Former Norwich, West Ham, Grays Athletic, Southend, Northampton, Stevenage and Oxford midfielder Mitchell Cole has died of a heart attack aged 27. Cole was forced to retire from professional football in February 2011 because of a heart defect.

And former Liverpool captain and manager Phil Taylor has passed away at the age of 95. Taylor played 343 games for the Reds after joining from Bristol Rovers in 1936. He was manager between 1956 and 1959, before Bill Shankly took charge at Anfield.

It's sad news n seems to be a common thing happening in football which is frightening for any athlete, is it over training or what it's shocking.

Thoughts are with his family :(

The lad had known about his condition since he was 17 at West Ham but continued to play professionally up to 2010 when he was forced to give up full time but played in the Southern League for Hitchin and Arlesey until he saw Fabrice Muamba collapse.

He scored the first competitive goal at the new Wembley and his achievements, despite his condition are pretty remarkable. RIP Mitchell and condolences to his family and friends
