Simon's two goals in the 67th and 71st minute saw the striker earn the honour of the fastest brace in FFA Cup history.

David Carney would add a third for Sydney FC to see the Sky Blues through comfortably with a 3-0 win.

Two goals in the opening twenty minutes from defender Dino Djulbic was enough for Perth Glory to see off rivals Brisbane Roar in a 2-0 victory.

Stipo Andrijasevic showed just why he's being courted by Wellington Phoenix with the decisive goal against Cockburn City, his left footed shot from the centre of the box to the bottom left corner enough to send the Knights through.

David Araya had earlier cancelled out the opener from Jacob Colosimo to send both sides into the break level.
