Good result against Wisla puts us in strong position - Fulham's Jol

Fulham boss Martin Jol says the London clubs legacy in the Europa League needs to be carried on this season.

The Cottagers turned heads by making the final in 2009/10 and ahead of tomorrow night's group stage match against Wisla Krakow at Craven Cottage, Jol has highlighted the importance of recording a victory which would put them in a good position to qualify for the knockout stages.

"It is important for most of the teams to qualify, although English teams will say it is not the biggest thing in the world," he said.

"I think Fulham raised their profile in Europe a couple of years ago [when they reached the final] so there is a culture in this squad that they want to do well and I agree with that.

"Twente play a weaker team in Odense tomorrow so we have to take things in our hands.

"If we get a good result tomorrow we are halfway there."
