Fulham boss Mark Hughes fears competing in the Europa League qualifiers will wreck their new season preparations.

Should they qualify, Hughes will have just four days between the players returning from their summer break and the first Europa League qualifying clash.

Hughes said: "We've got plenty of pre-season plans but can't commit to them.

"We can hold certain things for a time but the longer it goes on, we might lose the opportunities.

"We will wait and see. We'll have to move quickly."
