Favourites Highlanders will today engage in battle with How Mine in the Mbada Diamonds Cup final at Barbourfields Stadium in Bulawayo.
After missing out on the league title twice in successive years to Dynamos on goal difference Bosso will be desperate to appease their success starved fans. Ominously for the Bulawayo giants, How Mine have already beaten them twice this season.
Bosso coach Kelvin Kaindu said “It means a lot for Highlanders to be playing in the Cup Final because very few teams get to reach this far. We have to give it our best shot because there are good cash incentives which I know could take the team to a better level.
“We have played them twice and lost but the results do not reflect the true complexion of those games. I think we failed to get goals and we should be scoring this time,” the Zambian mentor said.
How Mine coach Philani Ncube meanwhile said “The feeling of reaching the final of a major Cup final is just amazing for us. We are happy to get where we are now,” said Ncube yesterday.
“Football is no longer about a big teams or small teams but it’s all about setting targets and taking your chances.
“We looked at the Mbada Diamonds Cup campaign and saw that its only four games to win the trophy and the road is shorter than the 30 matches needed to win the league championship. So we said we could do it and now we are in the final,” said Ncube.
“We defeated them twice in the league but this is a different game and I know that Highlanders will be better prepared and I hope we have also done so. It will be 50-50,” he said.
