We have been drawn against Slavia Prague in the first round of the UEFA Cup.

The Czech team were drawn first, so we are scheduled to play the away leg first on September 14. The home leg follows on September 28.

Sporting director Damien Comolli said: "It's a draw against a competitive side who have some good younger players. It will be an interesting tie. We will be at home in the second leg so that's a good thing."

Slavia Prague beat Karvan Evlakh of Azerbaijan 2-0 over two legs in the second qualifying round with a 2-0 away win followed by a goalless draw at home. They are currently fifth in the Czech A League after two wins and two draws in the opening four games.
