Dynamos and the Mighty Bulls will now meet in the finals on November 26 after De Mbare overcame FC Platinum 1-0 courtesy of a Cuthbert Malajila early strike at Barbourfields Stadium, while Motor Action had an easy stroll in the park against Zimbabwe Saints whom they beat 2-0 in a rain delayed match at Sakubva Stadium.
The Mighty Bulls have Tawanda Ushe and Passmore Benard to thank for reaching the penultimate stage where the winner will get $70 000 and a place in the 2012 Caf Confederations Cup where all expenses will be paid for by the sponsors of the Mbada Holdings Cup.
Dynamos, though, will be the first to admit that they did not have it easy against FC Platinum as the Zvishavane based side dominated the proceedings but found goalkeeper Washington Arubi a strumbling block. The Dynamos goalkeeper was duly named man of the match after producing stunning saves much to the disappointment of the FC Platinum fans.
The Premier Soccer League have pegged November 26 as the day for the finals in order to give the Zimbabwe Football Association enough days to register the winners for the Caf Confederations Cup. Caf have set November 30 as the deadline for all the football federations to register their clubs for the 2012 Pan African Competitions.
Ironically both Dynamos and Motor Action will have to square it off again earlier this Wednesday when they clash in Castle Lager league match which will also have a strong bearing on the league title race.
At the moment Dynamos are second, three points, behind FC Platinum who have 52 points while the Mighty Bulls are in third position on 45 points. The two teams have met twice with Dynamos winning the Charity Shield final while Motor Action took revenge in a league match.
There have been reports circulating that the Mbada Holdings Cup final will be screened live on the popular satellite football channel Supersport.
