Cup fever will hit Canberra tonight as Capital Football’s Round 3 of the Westfield FFA Cup begins at Hawker Football Centre.
State League Lanyon United will take on Capital League side Narrabundah Bulls as they look to progress through the first round of Canberra qualifying.
Lanyon will come into this match off the back of an exciting 4-3 win over Tuggeranong United in State League 1 on Saturday with four separate goalscorers getting on the sheet in the win. Lanyon sit fourth on the table from their 2 matches with a win and a draw, and will be hoping to continue that momentum with a win tonight.
Narrabundah come in having lost 5-3 to ANU FC at Willows on Saturday, and will want to bounce back from two straight losses in the league so far and sit bottom of the table with only three goals scored across their two matches.
The Bulls’ second half display on Saturday was far better than their first and bringing in that form tonight will be essential.
The Magic of the Cup continues on Thursday Night at Woden Park Enclosed as White Eagles Capital League side plays host to State League Burns, Weston Molonglo take on Brindabella Blues next Tuesday at Hawker and then an-all Goulburn Derby later that week between Goulburn Strikers and Goulburn FC.
After Canberra Olympic’s dream run to the semi-finals last year, plenty of eyes will be on the Capital again as we wait to see who will be the next team to carry the Magic of the Cup.
