The pressure is all on Central United heading into this afternoon's Chatham Cup final against Lower Hutt City in Wellington.

The Auckland club are favourites after thrashing 2010 winners Miramar Rangers six-nil in the semi-finals.

Coach Chris Zoricich says the club is celebrating its 50th jubilee and it only adds to the expectation.

"For the club's sake as well, because it's been a big year for the club. There's been a bit of pressure on me to win something this year, so hopefully, fingers crossed it all goes well and we can bring the cup back up to Auckland."

It's the first time Lower Hutt City has made the final in the club's 91-year history.

Kick-off from Newtown Park is at 2.30.
