Young Peninsula Power boss Aaron Philp says he’ll spend the next few weeks trying to devise a plan to stop Tim Cahill and Bruno Fornaroli after his side was drawn against Melbourne City in the Westfield FFA Cup Round of 32.
Philp’s Power will host the Cup’s defending champions in what will be a massive night for the Queensland PS4 NPL club.
BIGGEST MATCH IN POWER HISTORY
“I think so. It will be huge for the club," Philp said.
“We have a really good supporter base at Peninsula Power and they’ll really enjoy the experience as much as the players will.
“It will be awesome. Our ground intensity will be there…I think we’ll be able to squeeze 5000 [fans] in.”
HOW DO YOU STOP CAHILL AND CO?
“I’ve got three or four weeks to think about it. I’ll have to rack my brain to try and stop them.
“It’s going to be a really big task but its excellent to play against the [defending Westfield FFA Cup] champions.
“Let’s go straight to the top first and play the best side there is.”
A HUGE CHALLENGE FOR THE COACH
“I’ve only been coaching Power for two seasons in the Premier League so it’s huge.
“I haven’t had a game this big ever.
“It’s David v Goliath and we’ve got nothing to lose. We’ll give it a good crack and see how we go.”
