BRIAN SCIARETTA - Friday, November 18, 2011
After earning just one point in their last five games in the Bosnian Premier Liga, Velez Mostar will look to return to their winning ways when they host relegation fodder Sloboda Tuzla on Saturday.
American forward Danijal Brkovic netted a hat trick in a friendly during the international break and should start on Saturday.
Brkovic has finally claimed a spot in the starting lineup. He has scored in friendlies and cup games but is still looking for his first league goal.
In their most recent league game, Velez were easily defeated 3-0 by Borac Banja Luka.
Velez will be without Samir Merzić, Zlatko Kazazić and Armel Škaljić who are all injured.
