Mighty Bulls eye league and cup double

BancABCSup8r champions and defending league champions Motor Action say they want a league and cup double after they stormed into the semi-final of the $1m Mbada Diamonds Cup by edging Blue Ribbon 1-0 in the quarter finals at Torwood at the weekend.

The defending league champions, who won the title last season at the expense of Dynamos, will now face Zimbabwe Saints in the last four games of the richest cup in the country.

Saints beat Kiglon in a dramatic penalty shoot out to sail through.

But, crucially for the Mighty Bulls, the win against Blue Ribbon was their first in nearly two months and Motor Action are hoping it will prove a key turning point as the season draws to an end.

The Mighty Bulls, who won the fourth edition of the BancABC Sup8r after beating Highlanders will now fancy their chances of a league and cup double.

Motor Action are also in the race for the coveted league title. The Harare side are in third place with 44 points, five behind leaders FC Platinum who have 49 points and four adrift of second placed Dynamos.

Assistant coach David George, who is taking charge of the team in the absence of head coach Joey Antipas who is away for a coaching course in Denmark,s aid this week they want to win all three medals. "It was a good victory against Blue Ribbon. It gave us confidence because we want to win all. We won the BancABC and are now in the semi-final of the Mbada Cup and are also still in the race for the league title. It will not be easy but that's our target," he said.
