FFA Cup Preview: Opening Night of the Round of 32

July 22nd, 2018

 SPROULE SPORTS FOCUS

 

It’s back! The FFA Cup Round of 32 gets underway on Wednesday night with six matches to look forward to right around the country.

And it’s the Member Federation clubs in focus on the opening night, with 12 in action as they begin their quest for glory on the national stage.

 

CANBERRA FC v BROADMEADOW MAGIC

It’s the newcomers from the ACT up against FFA Cup regulars from Northern NSW at Deakin Stadium, in a content that could go either way.

While Canberra FC lost over the weekend, results elsewhere means they remain at the top of the ladder in the nation’s capital.

And they’ll want to bounce back to form quickly at Deakin Stadium because Broadmeadow is a side in white-hot form after banging in five unanswered goals in their drubbing of Valentine FC over the weekend.

Canberra FC have youngster Jordan Thurtell in goal and he’ll hope to have a quiet night, while at the other end it will be left to the likes of Kofi Danning, Thomas James and Ryan Keir to come up with the magic in the attacking third.

For Broadmeadow, currently in second spot on the Northern NSW ladder, James Virgili and Kale Bradbery are the players the home side will need to shut down.
