The first leg in Dar es Salaam ended in a 1-1 draw and Township Rollers were favourites to progress.

But the Tanzanian giants and Balinya had other ideas as they won to advance 2-1 on aggregate.

The former Police FC attacking midfielder scored a free kick from the edge of the area in the 43rd minute and Yanga held on to set up an exciting final qualifying round clash with Zambia’s Zesco United.
