Duff looking forward to Europa League action

The Cottagers face CSKA Sofia in their group stage opener on Thursday.

“We’re not planning on letting Europe become a major negative factor,” he said.

“Obviously the travelling can be hard at times but the group we’ve been drawn in gives us some nice games, which will give the whole place a lift.

“Hopefully we can carry that into our league programme. I think it’s exciting and when you’re excited you’re not thinking about burning out.”
