South Hobart eyeing revenge in FFA Cup

South Hobart coach Ken Morton says his side will attack Sydney United 58 when they face Mark Rudan's side in the Westfield FFA Cup round of 32.

After being drawn on Wednesday to visit Sydney United, South Hobart will travel north with revenge on their mind after losing to the same opposition in the final of the 2013 National Premier Leagues.

Westfield FFA Cup Round of 32 draw revealed

Sydney United won 2-0 in Tasmania to be crowned the inaugural National Premier Leagues champions two years ago, with Glen Trifiro - now with Central Coast Mariners - and Ibrahim Haydar scoring in the opening quarter-hour for the visitors.

Despite having lost the likes of Newcastle Jets recruit Andy Brennan and his son Nick - who has joined South Melbourne - since last year's FFA Cup involvement, Morton is convinced South Hobart have the ability to take the game to their hosts at Sydney United Sports Centre.

South Hobart will return to the Westfield FFA Cup round of 32 for a second straight year.

"When we played them here [in Hobart in 2013], we sat off them, had a look at them and they destroyed us on a couple of set-pieces," Morton told Perform on Thursday.

"Once we started to push up and press a little bit higher up the field, we got ourselves back into the game and we done quite well… so I think we'll go there with confidence, we've got nothing to lose."

While Brennan and Morton Jr are gone, South Hobart boast the equal leading goal-scorer in Tasmania's Victory League this season in Brayden Mann, who has 15 goals to his name.

"We go in now with a new strike force of Brayden Mann and [Alex] 'Albie' Leszcszynski, with Rex Hunt and Darcy Hall in the wide areas - and all these lads can score goals," Morton Sr said.

In last year's FFA Cup round of 32, South Hobart hosted Tuggeranong United with the 105-year-old Tasmanian club exiting on penalties.

Morton is desperate to improve on that showing in 2015.

He believes the next month, where his second-placed team will face two of their fellow top-four Victory League clubs - Hobart Zebras and Olympia FC, should adequately prepare his players for their trip to New South Wales.

"The Zebras are a strong, physical side, a good side, they have quality players, they're well organised - that'll be a really stiff test for us, and Olympia are a good footballing side as well," the 68-year-old said.

"They have a good strike force, which I'm led to believe Sydney have, and we'll try and make those games to fit in with how we want to play in the FFA Cup."
