GALLERY: Sky Blues Progress To Quarter Finals

Check out the pick of the shots from our FFA Cup Round of 16 win over Cairns FC at Barlow Park on Tuesday night.

Sydney FC is one step closer to defending their FFA Cup title after a defeating Cairns FC 2-1 in North Queensland to reach the Quarter Finals for the third consecutive season.

The home side took the lead against the run of play in the 16th minute after a corner wasn’t cleared, however the Sky Blues came back with a glut of possession and chances but were missing the finishing touch.

It was only a matter of time before Sydney FC broke down the Northern Queensland side as they peppered the goal throughout the contest.

A rapid fire double would prove enough for Corica’s men, with captain Brosque and young gun Buhagiar on the scoresheet.
