Europa League - Jol: Job not done yet

Thu, 30 Jun 23:33:00 2011

Fulham manager Martin Jol insisted there was still plenty to do after his side saw off Faroese minnows NSI Runavik 3-0 in the first leg of their Europa League first qualifying round tie.

Goals from Damien Duff, Danny Murphy and Andrew Johnson earned the hosts a convincing victory at Craven Cottage to seemingly set them on course for the second qualifying round.

A further 22 matches remain if they want to repeat their 2010 heroics of making the final, but the west Londoners look in a strong position heading into next week's second leg at NSI.

The triumph was also the perfect start to recently-appointed manager Jol's tenure, but the former Tottenham boss was not getting carried away.

"If I say [it is job done], you will tell everyone I said the job was done so I will say it's a good score," he said.

"We started off brightly the first five minutes and then it was difficult to find the spare man up front. The second half was better. If there was no possibility to play it up to Andy or Bobby [Zamora] you have to play down the flanks and the second half was better."
