Tomislav Sokota moved onto four goals for the season despite another poor performance by out of form Lokeron. Sokota, had been experiencing a disappointing season with only 2 goals, one of which was disputed, but his recent strikes against Westerlo and now in the 4-1 defeat against Charleroi may have improved matters. The side, who also have Ivan Leko and Mario Carevic on their roster are hugely threatened by relegation.

It is questionable whether Lokeron will retain any of their Croats, but Sokota's recent improvement may at least ensure interest from the HNL1 at the end of the season. Dinamo particularly having seen the benefits of experienced players such as Zjelko Sopic and Nino Bule would be happy to see a few elder heads in Lokomotiva's changing rooms to help their young stars of the future.

Another player enjoying a more impressive goalscoring spree is Krunoslav Lovrek. Since moving to the Korean League with Jeonbuk Motors, the 30 year former NK Zagreb player just cannot stop scoring. Lovrek only recently joined the club in January but has netted three times and made his first appearence in Asia's version of the Champions League. Lovrek's experiences may attract other Croatians to venture to the Far East. Lovrek's main motivation for the transfer was the break out of a impossible situation with former club Eskirespor who were holding his registration and preventing his return to Croatia. The same situation to which prevents Stjepan Poljak moving across to HNK Rijeka and kaiboshed any deal happening in Poland.

In other news Bosnian international Dragan Blatnjak has switched to FK Rostov after FK Moscow pulled out of the Russia Premier League due to problems with their sponsor. Moscow acquired Blatnjak and Karlovac's Goran Drmic as they hoped of starting the season, but Blatnjak has now been forced to go elsewhere.
