Chris Baird says Fulham can’t afford to sit back on their narrow lead over Shakhtar Donetsk in tomorrow’s Europa League second leg.

Roy Hodgson’s side take a 2-1 lead to Ukraine and know that the margin for error is particularly small thanks to Luiz Adriano’s valuable away goal at Craven Cottage last week. Baird says Fulham will be looking to be positive.

They’re the holders, so it’s always going to be tough. We can’t sit back otherwise we’re going to create a lot of problems for ourselves.

We’ll be looking to score – we always do when we’re away. Hopefully we can progress.
