HORSHAM Falcons will field a near full-strength side for its must-win Ballarat and District Soccer Association division three open clash with Creswick Maroon on Sunday at 3pm.

The sixth-placed Falcons will host the fifth-placed Maroons in round 17 at Horsham's Dudley Cornell Park.

Both sides desperately need a win to further their top-four ambition.

The Maroons sit one point behind fourth-placed Sebastopol, with the Falcons a further five points in arrears.

Falcons coach Mick Clark said the host would have a much stronger side than in past weeks.

He said Ebby Njoku would return, as would Travis Cowan from a hamstring injury.

The side's third-highest goal-scorer Jake Hinton could also return after last playing in round 12.

Last time the sides met, the Maroons edged out the Falcons 2-1.

The Falcons' under-15 side will also play at home, against North United Black at 1pm.
