DYNAMOS set up an all too familiar Independence Cup final against FC Platinum after overcoming a battling ZPC Kariba 2-0 in a semi-final clash at Rufaro on Wednesday.

The two goals came from unlikely sources, defenders Blessing Moyo and Obey Mwerahari.

Moyo scored from the spot in the first half on 25 minutes before Mwerahari sealed victory with a header five minutes from the end from a cross by Godknows Murwira.

In the other semi-final clash FC Platinum saw off Caps United 6-5 on penalties to go through to the final against Dynamos.

The two teams met in the final last year with FC Platinum triumphing 3-0 on penalties after they had remained tied 1-1 in regulation time.

On Saturday they meet again in a repeat of last year’s showdown.

However, the Dynamos faithful will be happy to finally break the jinx against ZPC Kariba.

David Mandigora's men went into the match seeking their first win against ZPC Kariba since their promotion into the league a year ago. They were beaten twice 1-0 and 2-0 in their league meetings last year.

And they showed they were ready to make a point in the early stages of the match with Farai Mupasiri coming close on five minutes.

Still, ZPC Kariba also had some good chances with Tawanda Nyamandwe missing two headed opportunities on 16 and 18 minutes.

Dynamos went into the lead on 25 minutes through a penalty by Moyo after Dominic Chungwa was brought down in the penalty box by Sylvester Apiah.

In the second half, Dynamos dominated for longer periods and their persistence paid off on 85 minutes with Mwerahari leaping highest to plant a firm header into the nets off a cross from Murwira.
