Paul Konchesky knows Fulham are heading into the unknown as they travel to Lithuania for their Europa League clash with FK Vetra.

The two clubs will meet in Vilnius on Thursday night and, although Konchesky is unsure of what to expect from the third qualifying round tie, he will be giving Vetra the utmost respect.

"I've never been out to Lithuania and I don't think many of the other players have either," he told the club's official website.

"It's going to be a first for most of the team. It's going to be a hard test as we don't know too much about FK Vetra but when we get out there we'll have videos to watch and a team meeting.

"It doesn't matter who the opposition is, whether it be a non-league team or a Champions League side, you must prepare the same.

"As I said we'll get to know much more about the opposition when we get out to Lithuania and sit down with the manager and have a meeting.

"We've been preparing for this game like we would for a Premier League game. We need to win on Thursday and hopefully we'll come back to the Cottage with a goal advantage having not conceded any.

"We'll take it game by game and, if we can get the result we want from the third round, then we'll take it from there."
