Western Sydney Wanderers go through after surviving major FFA Cup scare

Oriol Riera was the hero for Western Sydney Wanderers.

A double from Spanish striker Oriol Riera helped Western Sydney Wanderers avoid an FFA Cup shock as they beat Blacktown City 4-2 on penalties on Tuesday.

Wanderers turned in a lacklustre showing against the NSW NPL1 side but eventually prevailed after a 2-2 draw.

Former National Soccer League club Blacktown eliminated Central Coast Mariners last month, but there seemed little likelihood of another upset in the early stages as Riera netted from the spot after just three minutes.

Ronald Vargas will bring goals to Newcastle Jets - Ernie Merrick

Jason Dasey and Nick Ward give their early thoughts and predictions ahead of the 2017/18 A-League.

Coach Ernie Merrick is upbeat the arrival of Venezuelan international Ronald Vargas will add the attacking spark the Newcastle Jets need to turn around their dismal recent A-League fortunes.

Merrick is the Jets' seventh coach since the struggling club last made the finals seven seasons ago.

But the Scot is confident a player of Vargas' pedigree can lift the Jets, who are aiming to get off to a flying start to the new season when they face Central Coast in the F3 derby on Oct. 7.

And though Stajcic lamented his team's inability to put...
