JUBILANT Colchester United boss John McGreal says he would love the chance to go head to head with another Premier League side in the next round of the Carabao Cup.

And the U's head coach says playing another big team at the JobServe Community Stadium would be the ideal draw.

Colchester are awaiting the fourth round draw, which takes place tonight after the MK Dons-Liverpool tie.

The U's are still on cloud nine after recording a stunning victory over Tottenham Hotspur, beating them 4-3 on penalties after the game finished 0-0 after 90 minutes.

McGreal said: “It would be brilliant to get a Premier League team or a top Championship team at home.

“You can see what the night does and it just gets everyone going.

“I’m looking forward to watching my team Liverpool (against MK Dons).

“It’s about the team and the club.

“That’s the most important thing.

“One or two players haven’t been happy because they’ve been left out of the team.

“Gams (Luke Gambin) wasn’t even in the squad last Saturday (against Leyton Orient) and young Kwame (Poku) is injured and had to drop out.

“These boys know that there’s a role for them to play and they were able to do that."

McGreal said the incredible scenes at the end of the shoot-out were memorable.

Ecstatic Colchester fans spilled onto the pitch after they won the tie on penalties, to cause one of the biggest upsets in their history.

McGreal added: “We didn’t get the chance to go across to the fans like we did at Palace because they all ran onto the pitch!

“I also wanted to show respect to Mr Pochettino and his staff.

“They were absolutely first class and he gave me a nice hug and a nice pat to say ‘well done, it was well-deserved’.

“It was one where I couldn’t get on the pitch because by the time I’d shaken their hands and the players’ hands the crowd were on.

“You’re not going to ruin their moment because I think it must be the first time since we stayed up that year when Tony (Humes) and Richard Hall were in charge that we’ve had that pitch invasion.

“It’s a lot of work for the groundsman (David Blacknall) but it’s brilliant."
