Victoria to have new representative in Round of 32

There will be at least one new Victorian team in the Westfield FFA Cup Round of 32, following the Victorian Preliminary Round 7 draw which was conducted on Monday afternoon.

Green Gully has been drawn to host FC Bulleen Lions at home as the only confirmed tie of the round, with three ties still to play in Round 6 meaning the remainder of the match-ups will be confirmed over the next couple of weeks.

"Every game from here will be difficult but we're confident in the team that we can get the job done," Green Gully Team Manager Paul Chircop said.

Both sides have yet to reach the national stage in the short history of the competition so far, giving Victoria a new representative in this year's national stages.

"Like every team in the NPL every game is a challenge for us and we're looking forward to it," FC Bulleen Lions Head Coach Domenic Barba said.

"Gully are a good strong team and if we can really push them you never know what can happen."

Melbourne Knights got a home draw, and will face either St Albans Saints or Port Melbourne Sharks, while Hume City awaits to host the winner of Richmond and Kingston City's tie tomorrow night.

"It's going to be a tough game no matter who we play. Hopefully we can get a couple of wins leading into the tie and that should hold us in good stead," Melbourne Knights forward Stipo Andrijasevic said.

For Hume City, they will be hoping to reach the Round of 32 for the second straight year and hope to replicate a Cup run that saw them go all the way to the semi finals last year before being beaten by eventual Cup winners Melbourne Victory. 

"We've got one more home game to win and then we get our chance to go to the national stage again," Hume City captain Nick Hegarty said.

Bentleigh Greens also has a wait on its hands, potentially facing South Melbourne or North Geelong Warriors.

"It's going to be a tough game but any team we would have faced in the next round would have been hard," Bentleigh Head Coach John Anastasiadis said.

"The good thing is we're playing at home which is a bit of an advantage but we're going to have to be at our best."
