By McLloyd Kudzingo

FCB Nyasa Big Bullets are through to the finals of the K120 million FDH Bank Cup following their 5-1 win against Dedza Dynamos in a semi-final match that took place at Kamuzu Stadium in Blantyre.

A brace from Anthony Mfune, and goals from Collins Okumu, Hassan Kajoke and McFarlen Ngwira was all what Bullets needed to book themselves a place in the final of the prestigious cup.

The People’s team took the lead three minutes into the game, through Collins Okumu who scored with a powerful header, connecting well a Patrick Mwaungulu’s beautifully taken free-kick.

Hassan Kajoke doubled the lead for the home side scoring his fourth goal in the tournament after receiving an excellent cross from Gomezgani Chirwa in the 65th minute.

Anthony Mfune increased the lead from a rebound in the 69th minute and completed his brace just four minutes later connecting well a beautiful pass from Patrick Mwaungulu.

Bullets got their final goal of the match just a minute before the end of the regulation time through MacFarlane Mgwira.

Mgwira capitalized on a defensive blander by Donnex Mwakasinga who gave away the ball to the opposition and it found the veteran player who made no mistake but to seal the victory for the Ndirande outfit.

Dedza got their consolation through Gift Magola who capitalized on a Collins Okumu’s blander to find the back of the net in the 85th minute.

The win means that Bullets have reached the FDH Cup final for the second time in a row and they will face Mafco FC who reached the final after outclassing Bullets’ rivals Mighty Mukuru Wanderers last weekend.

Bullets are the defending champions of FDH Cup as they won the cup last season after beating their juniors, FCB Nyasa Big Bullets Reserve.
