Fulham boss Martin Jol has hit out at the scheduling that will see his side play only two games this month.
He believes it could have a negative effect on his side.
Jol said: "This month was very annoying for us because we will only have two games – Sunderland earlier in the month and this game.
"That is not what you want. There are other teams in the cups, like Spurs, and I think it is better to keep your rhythm than not."
