Martin Jol has urged his Fulham squad to come out all-guns-blazing in tonight’s Europa League play-off with Dnpro.

The Cottagers are currently 3-0 up on aggregate, and have flown to the Ukraine for the second leg against the European side.

And while Fulham are in prime position to defend their way to an aggregate win, Jol believes that Dnpro will be attacking hard and his need to do the same.

"They're a good team with a very good home record," he said. "Away from home it's different for them.

“They will probably do everything they can to score an early goal. For us it's very important to score on Thursday night."

Jol insisted that an attacking style of play would be used in the clash tonight, with Fulham taking no chances on winding down the clock and holding possession.


 

"When we've got the ball our intention will be to score,” he said.

"It's important to be strong defensively and if you drop off like we did in the last 15 to 20 minutes of the first leg then you could end up with a problem, because they are very good at finding the spare man on the edge of the box or creating an overlap."

Fulham have a tough schedule over the next few days, with the side flying from the Ukraine to face Newcastle at St James’ Park on Sunday.

But, as Jol said earlier in the week, tiredness is no excuse for Fulham to drop their form, and the manager will be hoping his side can see through the tough back-to-back away matches.
