FFA Cup spots down to the wire for SA hopefuls

Just four clubs remain in the preliminary rounds of the FFA Cup in South Australia.

And after this week's games, only two will be left standing to fight for the one coveted spot in the Round of 32.

State League 1 side Cumberland United host National Premier League club Adelaide Comets on Tuesday night at the Adelaide Shores Football Centre.

The home side moved through the first three rounds of qualifying without conceding a goal before upsetting Adelaide Olympic 2-1 in extra-time in the last round.

Meantime the Comets needed a penalty shoot-out to get past Adelaide City in the previous round.

Tuesday's winner will go on to play either State League 1 side Modbury Jets or 2017 NPL champions Croydon Kings.


Those two meet Wednesday evening at Valo Football Centre.
