Capital Football FFA Cup Round 4 Matchups & FIxtures

The matches for Capital Football’s Round 4 of the 2017 Westfield FFA Cup have been confirmed following Wednesday’s draw at Deakin Stadium.

Reigning Federation Cup champions Canberra Olympic were seeded first for the draw, with the other eight NPL clubs, five Capital League clubs and two State League clubs following.

The first matchup to be drawn out was the Riverina Rhinos, new in Capital Football competition this year, who were matched up with Capital League club Weston-Molonglo FC who won through 5-2 against Brindabella Blues in Round Three.

State League side Lanyon United were the next home team drawn out, after they progressed with a 2-0 defeat of Capital League team Narrabundah in the last round. They were drawn to face Tuggeranong United in something of a south side derby.

PS4 NPL Woden-Weston were next to go and they will match up against Queanbeyan City, one of the Capital League sides who were drawn to progress straight through to Round Four, avoiding an extra matchup.

Olympic came out next and will face a stern test in facing a Goulburn Strikers side who completed a fantastic come-from behind victory in the Goulburn Derby last week. Down 2-0 early, the Strikers came back to take a fantastic 3-2 win in extra time and will challenge Olympic in this tie.

Capital League’s White Eagles came out next and they secured a home tie against PS4 NPL side Canberra FC, in what is sure to be an entertaining clash. White Eagles also progressed directly to the Fourth round through the original draw, so both sides wil be playing their first knockout matches of the year.

NPL side Tigers FC were drawn out for a home tie against current Capital League leaders and reigning Premiers ANU FC, in what shapes up to be a cracking matchup. ANU are yet to lose so far this season and will face a Tigers side who have been up and down so far.

The next matchup saw the only all-Premier League tie drawn, as Belconnen United were pulled out to host Monaro Panthers. The two have had rather contrasting seasons so far with Belconnen sitting at the pointy end of the table, and Monaro searching for their first win. But knockout competitions are a different beast and this tie could go either way.

O’Connor Knights were the final home side drawn out, matched up against Gungahlin United in a Capital League v Premier League clash. Gungahlin have hit their straps the last couple of weeks in the Premier League while O’Connor have stumbled slightly, but the Knights will be a tough task at home in the Cup.
