Sharks must show bite in FFA Cup tie

THE Palm Beach Sharks will have to overcome a lack of match practice to knock the Central Coast Mariners out of the FFA Cup in tonight's quarter-final clash on the Glitter Strip.

The Sharks earned a spot in the last eight by downing Victorian giant-killers South Springvale last month, but haven't played since losing in the semi-finals of the National Premier League competition almost three weeks ago.

Striker and former Gold Coast United youth player Chris Lucas looms as the key man for Palm Beach as he strives to show he is worthy of a contract in the A-League.

Ex-Gold Coast United defender Kristian Rees has been a leading light for the Sharks in their FFA Cup run, while skipper Justyn McKay and Daniel

Dragicevic will also be crucial, although Dragicevic is battling a hamstring complaint.
