Saham, the 2010 winner, set up a title clash with first-time finalist Al Khabourah in the His Majesty's Cup Football Championship when it edged past hosts Al Nasr 1-0 in Salalah on Sunday night. 

Saham's solitary-goal victory in the second-leg semifinal was enough to book a place in the final after the first-leg game at the Sohar Sports Complex on April 6 had ended in a goalless stalemate.

The match-winner was scored by Mohsin Jawhar in 86th minute.

The 'Batinah derby' title clash will take place at the Sohar Sports Complex on April 30, according to the Oman Football Association (OFA). Lt Gen Hassan bin Mohsen al Shraiqi, Inspector General of Police and Customs, will be the chief guest at the final and present the coveted trophy.
