Sydney FC and Western United are both through to the quarter-finals of the Australia Cup after scoring 2-0 wins over APIA Leichhardt and Gold Coast Knights respectively.

And they were joined in the last eight on Wednesday by Heidelberg United, which accounted for Mt Druitt Town Rangers 3-0 at Popondetta Park.

Anthony Caceres put the Sky Blues ahead in the 54th minute at Leichhardt  Oval and they never looked back against the hosts.

Patrick Wood then added a second eight minutes later to secure their passage through to the next round.

At the Gold Coast Croatia Sports Centre, the Knights edged out Western United on shots at goal but it was the A-League Men’s club who had more efforts on target.

The visitors were assisted by an own goal from Jaiden Walker in the 72nd minute but had to wait until the 94th minute to secure the win when Matthew Grimaldi netted.

Goals from Kaine Sheppard (5th minute), Eoin Ashton (40th) and Aamir Abdalla Yunis (91st) sent Heidelberg through at the expense of Mt Druitt Town Rangers.

The eight teams through to the quarter-finals are Brisbane Roar, Melbourne City, Western Sydney Wanderers, MetroStars, Knights, Sydney FC, Heidelberg United and Western United.
