Capalaba are currently sitting in 3rd spot on the Football Queensland Premier League table, having won four of their six games so far, suffering defeat only to Souths United and Rochedale Rovers, although one of those defeats was at John Fredericks Park on Tuesday (3-0 against Souths United).
The tie comes at a difficult time for John Kosmina’s men, sandwiched between two massive derby matches in the NPL Queensland against Brisbane Strikers and Olympic, a series of matches that will sincerely test John Kosmina’s squad.
City have twice lost to lower league opposition in the FFA Cup qualifying rounds, both times against Logan Lightning (in 2014 and 2017).
City’s other defeats came against Brisbane Strikers (4-1) in 2015 and Redlands United in 2016. That year City registered their first win in the competition, a 2-0 derby victory over Mitchelton.
Capalaba have never defeated NPL opposition in the FFA Cup, losing on their two previous attempts to Strikers (2014) and Moreton Bay United (2016)
Last year, Capalaba came from behind to record a 2-1 victory over North Star before being knocked out by Logan Lightning, who would of course go on to conquer City in the next round.
