Havant and Waterlooville skipper Jamie Collins says he cannot wait to lead his side out against Liverpool in their fourth round FA Cup tie.

The Conference South side beat League One leaders Swansea City 4-2 on Wednesday to set up a trip to Anfield.

"All the lads have been talking about is walking out in front of the Kop, with 40,000 singing 'You'll Never Walk Alone'," Collins told BBC Radio Solent.

"All the money in the world couldn't buy that feeling," he added.

Collins added: "Our motivation was that Swansea kept calling us a pub side. We wanted to come out and prove that we don't just come and kick teams.

"We come out and try and play football, we try and play the right way, and I think in large spells of the game we outplayed them."

The club have been offered the use of the England coach to travel to Anfield after their heroic win.

It's remarkable result, a remarkable performance, it's a fantastic night for these people and this level of football

"They talk about the magic of the FA Cup, and we've just watched it," FA Chief Executive Brian Barwick told BBC Radio Solent.

Nearly 4,500 fans crammed into Westleigh Park to watch the historic win.

"It was a fantastic game, and in truth Havant could have scored more than they did. It's a remarkable result, a remarkable performance, it's a fantastic night for these people and this level of football," added Barwick.

The Conference South side travel to Anfield on 26 January.
