Shrewsbury Town Goalkeeper Coach Brian Jensen is grateful the League One club are facing Gillingham on Wednesday.

Two-nil down against the World Champions, Jason Cummings stepped up and delivered a hammer blow to Liverpool to earn a famous replay at Anfield.

A mix-up at the back between Dejan Lovren and Neco Williams gave Cummings the chance to slot past Adrian and set-up a replay in Liverpool.

The extra fixture isn't welcomed by Jürgen Klopp who has said he will miss the match whilst, "the kids will play" instead of his first-team regulars. Ex-Leicester City boss Martin Allen told Love Sport that he agreed with the German. 

However Shrewsbury Town's goalkeeper coach, Brian Jensen, was ecstatic that his side have the extra fixture due to the revenue which will be made by the League One outfit.

"It is massive, huge. The chairman has been putting a lot of money into this place. The club is stable, we don't owe any money, we own the training ground and the ground. 

With the extra money coming into the club thanks to the replay, the Goalkeeper Coach had a small request for the chairman!

"He deserves it. That extra bit of cash coming into the football club is always healthy. But can we put some money into somewhere else? 

"Maybe a little bit more development of the training facilities would be nice. Maybe some drains at the back area because that's my area and it's pretty muddy at the moment!

"But from my point of view it's always helping us for the future.

Jensen then told ex-Premier League 'keeper Rich Lee and Patrick Christys how all involved at the club will have a bump back to reality following their two-all draw.

"Yeah we're looking forward to it [the replay] but we have to get back to reality on Wednesday. An all-dayer down to Gillingham which is handy and then away to Rochdale and then we have the big game at Anfield."
