Gibbs buzzing for Western Sydney clash

Blacktown City striker Joey Gibbs is relishing a meeting with his former club in the Westfield FFA Cup Quarter Finals.

The 25-year-old was the two-goal hero for Blacktown City in a 3-1 win over APIA Leichhardt Tigers in their round-of-16 FFA Cup match at Lily Homes Stadium.

And City's reward is a Quarter Final visit from Hyundai A-League neighbours Western Sydney Wanderers.

“It's a massive encounter,” Gibbs told FOX SPORTS shortly after the draw was revealed.

“The boys would have taken anything but it's a Western Sydney derby.

“We'll be buzzing for it,” he grinned.

Gibbs was part of the Western Sydney side that won the Premier's Plate in their inaugural Hyundai A-League season in 2012/13, scoring twice in 13 appearances.

And having experienced the incredible support of the Wanderers faithful, he knows just how big an occasion it will be.

“It's not bad getting Western Sydney here, especially with the fans they bring,” said Gibbs.

“Hopefully with the fans we'll bring, it'll be a spectacle out here.

“Getting Wanderers here will just be a massive occasion for the club.”
