Fulham manager Rene Meulensteen says that he has warned his players not to be complacent against League One's Sheffield United in the FA Cup.

Rene Meulensteen has said that he has warned his players not to be complacent when they face Sheffield United in the FA Cup tomorrow.

Fulham travel to Bramall Lane for their fourth-round tie against the League One side, who knocked Aston Villa out in the last round.

The Cottagers manager told Sky Sports News: "I warned the players they can't be complacent. I said that to them straight away [after the draw].

"This will be a very difficult game. Sheffield United will try to chase everything and the crowd will get behind them.

"The key for us is to make sure we remain calm and focused and play away from that sort of pressure they throw at you."

Fulham beat Norwich City in the third round to set up the tie with the Blades.
