The north of Sydney against the west in a fascinating all PS4 NPL NSW clash in the Harbour City.
These two played out a 3-3 draw when they met at Cromer Park last month. Will this mean another goal avalanche in the Cup?
Having previously been beaten by Sydney Olympic in the Round of 32 in 2014, Manly recorded wins over the Gladesville Ravens, Glebe Gorillas, Killarney Districts and Mounties Wanderers in NSW’s Preliminary Rounds to book their spot in the 2016 Round of 32.
United will look to striker Dejan Pandurevic up front (12 goals this season, four behind leader Chris Payne) and the team will be buoyed by a 4-1 win over the Tigers on the weekend.
Conversely, Bonnyrigg head into this clash in a slump, with Brian “Bomber” Brown’s side winless in seven (they lost to Sydney United 58 on the weekend, 4-1).
However what better way to turn their season around than with a victory in front of their home fans on the national stage.
The White Eagles have their own quality marksman in the shape of former Adelaide United striker Robert Younis, who has ten goals this term, including an injury time penalty on the weekend.
