The Bonnyrigg White Eagles will host the Western Sydney Wanderers in the FFA Cup round of 16 at Marconi Stadium on August 29.

The draw for was conducted by Blake Ricciuto from the Rockdale City Suns FC  following the completion of of the round of 32 matches on Tuesday night where the Wanderers scraped past Darwin's Hellenic AC 4-3.

Milan Susak’s team had already qualified for the final stages after easing past Hakoah Sydney City East 2-1 a fortnight ago.

Since that win the White Eagles have conceded nine goals in their two league losses.

However they will be buoyed by the performance of Hellenic Athletic who fought back from 2-0 behind to level, and again when Sulav Maskey scored his second of the game to make it 3-3.

But, a dramatic 92nd minute winner from Roly Bonevacia shattered the dreams of the Northern Terriotry side and gave Markus Babbel a win in his coaching debut. 

The round of 32 did a claim a big scalp with the Bentleigh Greens eliminating A-League outfit Wellington Phoenix.

Bonnyrigg finish their NPL 1 campaign against Manly United FC at Cromer Park on Sunday, 3pm.
