APIA reached the Quarter Finals after consecutive wins in the Round of 32 and Round of 16 within the space of just a few days. 

The NPL NSW side needed extra-time to see off Tigers FC in Queanbeyan, before a famous victory over A-League Men side Western Sydney Wanderers to qualify for the last eight. 

They became the first ever NPL side to defeat an A-League team on two different occasions in the Cup, and will be looking to make it three against the Mariners. 

Highlights: APIA Leichhardt 2-1 Western Sydney Wanderers

Central Coast reached the last eight with wins over Blacktown City and Wollongong Wolves, winning 1-0 and 2-1 respectively. 

The Gosford-based side reached the Semi Finals last time out in 2019 and will be looking to do the same with a third-consecutive win over NPL NSW opposition. 

Nick Montgomery's side are fourth on the A-League Men table after five rounds, with three wins and two losses to their name.
