AJ ready for tough Fulham preseason

Andy Johnson expects a tough preseason with Fulham.

The England striker is part of the squad currently in Australia and told fulhamfc.com: "It's going to be hard," he admitted. "We only came back on Wednesday so it will be difficult for us. We trained on Wednesday and Thursday then flew out here. It's a long flight and it's new to a lot of us - I hadn't flown for 24 hours before - and it takes a bit of time to acclimatise, so it's going to be a tough game.

"But we've got a good bunch of lads out here and a good squad so it's also a good opportunity for us to experiment.

"We've got three games in 14 days, so it's a tough schedule, but that's what we need because our first competitive game is on the 30th. We haven't got the time to have a week or two build up, so it's good for us now to get out there, get some sharpness back, and get some game practice against the teams out here."
