It's crunch time for Croatia.

On Sunday, Croatia will host Wanderers at Croatia Park knowing anything other than a win would see them out of the running of this season league championship race.

Considering the position the club was in during the pre-season, Croatia have done a great job and are currently sitting third on the league ladder with nine points.

Some of that success has come down to keeper Jamie Tudhope who is having a stellar year in goals and could be in contention for keeper of the year honours this season.

Alex Longin maybe available for selection once again but they'll miss Faulds with a suspension.

It's been four decades since Wanderers have seen their side in this position at this stage of the season and there's an aura of excitement around the club at the moment.

Jesse Mikic has been at the heart of everything this season at Swandel.

He rarely loses the ball.

He is a tough competitor and links up well between the defence and forward line.

Croatia at home isn't an easy task but with Faulds out Wanderers will be favourites.
