Team Wellington have qualified for the national league grand final after beating Hawke's Bay United 1-0 at David Farrington Park today.

Justin Gulley scored the winner in the 90th minute, sealing a 3-1 aggregate win in the two-legged semifinal.

Wellington will almost certainly meet Auckland City in the title decider, with City holding a 4-0 advantage over Waitakere United ahead of tomorrow's second leg at Kiwitea Street.

Wellington will also qualify for the Oceania Champions League for the first time if City eliminate Waitakere tomorrow.
