Exciting Harare City star Tatessa Tumba only managed an injury because his team won the second Chibuku Super Cup trophy last year and is a measure of the progress he has made since then that he will start the Sunday clash with the triangle as one of the players to watch.
City wants to win his third Chibuku Super Trophy trophy in five seasons, but standing on the road is an experienced and tight side of the Triangle who hopes to take advantage of the home advantage to win the first major title.
In addition to reaching the Sunday show, Triangle made an impression on him in the league, where he now takes the fourth place.
The city also did not perform well in the league, and Tumba, who plays a wonderful campaign under Mark Harrison.
The form of the 19-year-old has reached the highest level in the last weeks, when he scored two goals, and another two assists in the last four appearances provided further evidence that his style is something more.
Tumba was among the handful of key City players who overcame the 2-0 loss of Highlanders last Sunday. Coach Mark Harrison looked ahead at the final at the Gibbo stadium, where the Warriors' prospect is expected to provide a creative spark in the last third.
Talking to KweséESPN this week, Tumba admitted to Harrison that he was reborn after the 2017 test campaign for former head of the City, Philani Ncube.

"God does miracles for me," said Tumb. "I think we have a good coach and he knows what I can do best, he believes in me.
"I worked hard doing extra work at home and I think it helped me improve my game this season.
"Last season was a bit difficult for me, and I got injured only during the Chibuku Cup final" – he added. "I did not even touch the ball."
The Chemhanza Academy product, whose progress is closely monitored by the Zimbabwean coach, Sunday Chidzambwa, should start on his favorite right flank, where his skills, vision and sudden bursts of speed can wreak havoc on the opposition.
It is not the only threat in the City squad, and William Manondo is once again thriving in the Chibuku Cup with a goal in each of the first three rounds.
Harrison will probably start to experience Kuda Musharu in the middle role against youthful Wilfred Muvirimi, while Mathew Muchenje should take his place behind the three fronts.
A member of the Tumba school team from Chelsea High School, Learnmore Muyambo, should be in the lead despite some shaky performances in recent weeks. In the central defense, Harrison seems more comfortable thanks to the partnership of Hastings Chapusha and Raymond Uchena.
Tri-City coach Taurai Mangwiro, however, has his winners in a duel, and Platinum striker, Lameck Nhamo, may be motivated to give his best during his last major expedition to Sugar Boys.
With experienced options such as Ralph Kawondera, Pascal Manhang, Collins Dhuwa, Russel Madamombe and Phineas Bamusi in a crowded midfielder, Mangwiro apparently has staff who suffered enough City problems on Sunday.
