Shrewsbury Town’s Jack Grimmer has said the whole team are remaining grounded after their shock win over Sheffield Wednesday in the FA Cup.
The Shrews became the talk of the country when they came from behind to beat promotion chasing Championship side Owls 3-2 in the FA Cup Fourth Round on Saturday, the biggest upset of the round.
And Shrewsbury fans got even more excited when the draw matched them up with Manchester United with the giants set to travel to Greenhous Meadow in the next round of the cup.
You wouldn’t blame both the players and the fans for getting carried away with an amazing week for the club but Grimmer, who scored the winning goal against Wednesday in the 3-2 win, has said the whole club are staying grounded despite all the media attention surrounding the Shropshire club right now.
Talking about the best weekend ever for Shrewsbury, Grimmer told the Shropshire Star: “Everyone was jubilant in the changing room afterwards, but I said after the Burton Albion win that it means nothing if we then get beat,”
“The manager congratulated everyone on being part of a fantastic day for the club and a fantastic performance – but, at the end of it, consistency is what he’s been asking for.”
“Saturday’s win was one of the best moments in my career but it can quickly go downhill if we don’t put in a good performance against Southend. People will quickly forget we beat Burton because we lost to Oldham.”
“So with a game coming so quickly, we really need to take this form into the league.”
