Bobby Zamora thinks Fulham’s European exertions are beginning to catch with them.

The in-form striker lashed in a crucial goal as the Whites established a vital 2-1 first leg lead in their Europa League quarter final against Wolfsburg on Thursday, but believes that the 52 games Roy Hodgson’s side have played already this season are starting to have an effect.

I think it’s starting to hit us. You can see with them as well when they played Berlin the other week they lost 5-1.

It’s hard, but we go into these games and dig in. We’re pleased we’re here, and wouldn’t change that for the world.

Zamora admits that conceding a late goal to Alexander Madlung was a blow but still feels Fulham have a great chance of progressing to the semi-finals.

We’re not worried, but it was disappointing to give that goal away right at the end. We’re in a good position, and we would’ve taken that.
