Fulham manager Roy Hodgson fears his side's travel plans for this Thursday's Europa League semi-final against Hamburg could be thrown into jeopardy by the volcanic ash cloud that has caused travel chaos across Europe.

UEFA are expected to announce on Monday whether or not they intend to let Fulham's first leg in Hamburg go ahead and Hodgson confirmed that European football's governing boday had been in touch with the club during Saturday`s 0-0 Barclays Premier League draw with Wolves.

"One of UEFA's concerns is that it should be fair and that their opponents don't have to go through hell and high water to get to the game," Hodgson explained.

"An ideal scenario would be that the volcanic ash clears up and we can fly over to Germany.

"It's totally and utterly linked to if there are flights. If there are no flights then the only option is to get a train and bus to Hamburg.

"There could still be a further problem because there might be no trains or coaches to travel on but I'm confident UEFA will resolve the problem."
