FFA CUP NNSW ROUND 3 PART 2
I can't speak for the club themselves but from the outside looking in this seems like the biggest game in the short history of the Hunter Simba football club. The multi-cultural team from Tighes Hill are up against a huge challenge when they meet Valentine Phoenix on Wednesday night.
This is a New-FM team taking on a Zone League two squad and make no doubt about it, a Simba win would be a massive shock. Valentine haven't got off to the best start in the NewFM comp but they bagged six on the weekend and will surely get past the Simba side.
The Simba picked up two big wins against Morisset and Kurri Kurri and did a great job to make it this far but unfortunately for them I think their FFA Cup journey will be coming to an end on Wednesday night.
My Tip: Valentine 8-1 Hunter Simba
Thornton Redbacks and West Wallsend do battle in the main game on Wednesday night and the all-NewFM league clash will surely be a highly competitive one as both sides look to make it to the next round.
On the weekend Thornton lost their way in the last ten minutes against Valentine and were smacked 6-1 whilst West Wallsend hung on for a 2-2 draw against Lakes. Based on this I'm going to tip a West Wallsend win. It's a hard one to call though.
My Tip: Thornton Redbacks 1-2 West Wallsend
