DARKO MAVRAK: Born in Mostar, the 30-year-old dual nationality Croatian-Swede started his career with the Bosnian side Velez Mostar, and then moved to Sweden in 1993 because of the war. He played 50 games for Djurgarden in Stockholm over two seasons, scoring nine goals as a flexible winger/striker. Djurgarden were relegated and Mavrak moved to IFK Norrkoping, scoring two goals in 27 appearances in two seasons. Spells at Panahaiki in Greece and Valkenberg back in Sweden obviously prepared him for the rigours of English football and he moved to Second Division Walsall in January this year. Having quickly established himself, Darko got off the marko on 23 February in an away game at Northampton when he cooly put away a tap-in from all of three yards to secure a 1-0 victory. If his side, lying second behind Fulham, maintain their momentum, First Divsion football beckons for them.
