Gold Coast Knights began their FFA Cup journey with a 2-0 victory over Taringa Rovers midweek at the Croatian Sports Centre.
With the game being postponed three times, the home team opened the scoring through a well worked play and finish by in form midfielder Mitch Nichols.
Rovers didn’t sit back however, creating opportunities of their own and being denied by the post throughout the first half.
The Knights settled the game in the second half, eventually scoring through a Cai Tipaldo diving header to seal the game.
Debuts to Aleki Ingham and Jed Power in the first team showed the depth and quality of the young players coming through the club, as both looked lively through their minutes in the second half.
The Knights now have a quick turn around in Round 5 FFA Cup action when they host fellow NPL side Eastern Suburbs on Saturday evening at 5pm.
