"A run in Europe can sometimes impact on your league form but we have to be prepared for that. It wouldn't be the first time that happened and we know that from when we played in Europe two years ago. Hopefully we have learned.
"We won't be able to keep playing the same players all the time. 50 or 60 games a season is crazy and if you look at the teams who do well in two or three competitions, they are always changing their players around.
"We know we can't do it like them because we haven't got 20 players. But we will do the best that we can. We know how hard it is to qualify and we don't want what happened to us in Bucharest two years ago to happen again. This is a massive chance for us."
