Baird is found out wide by Dempsey but his delivery into the box from a god area fails to beat the first defender.
Zamora is just caught offisde as he tries to latch on to a flick on to get him in behind the Twente defence.
We are are into the last six minutes of the game and you can feel the tension growing around the ground now
De Jong and Rosales fail to take advantage of Fulham defensive lapse and waste an opportunity to get a shot on goal.
CHANCE!!! Sidwell gets on to the the end of a superb cross in from the right but he can't keep his header down.
CHANCE!!! Dembele looses control of the ball after a threatening run. The ball then falls into Dempsey's path but his stinging drive is well saved!!
Johnson does well to get the left flank and pulls the ball back for Sidwell who just fails to get a meaningful connection on the ball.
Johnson just fails to bring Murphy's threaded pass under his control and it goes out for a corner. Great pass by Murphy.
Cornelisse blazes a shot over the bar after he is found on the corner of the box unmarked. Wild effort.
CHANCE!!! Johnson from close range shoots straight at the 'keeper. Should have scored!!! No more than six yards out.
Murphy chips a ball into the box for Kasami who was trying to knock the ball down for Dempsey. But he did not have the direction on the ball.
The tempo of the game has really picked up and already this second half is shaping up to be a good one.
CHANCE!!! Dempsey gets inside the defender and flings himself at a cross from Kasami but it goes wide.
The referee has blown for the interval in what has been an interesting half of football. So while the players are enjoying their brews feel free to grab one yourselves and see you after the break.
Another dangerous ball from the right is pumped into the box but Baird is there to head the danger out.
Dembele worked back well to win the ball and stride forward but he allowed himslef to get dispossessed.
It really was a well worked goal by the Dutch team and De Jong showed why he is earning rave reviews in his homeland.
Brilliant cross from the right and De Jong rose so well to direct a powerful back across goal which went in off the post and in.
CHANCE!! Briggs shows his ability going forward from left-back as he gets in an attacking position and flashes a right footed shot acros goal.
CHANCE!! DE Jong just found space in the box to thump a header at goal that is well saved. Good effort lad!!!
CHANCE!!! Hangeland plays a ball into Murphy who ghosts behind the defender but he is unable to get his header on target. The ball was just a little too high.
Douglas jockeyed Johnson well to shadow him out of the area and away from the danger zone. Good defending from the young lad who has looked impressive.
Fulham are moving the ball well now and a passing move breaks down when Dempsey slips when it looks as if he could be in on goal.
Dempsey and Grygera combined well down the right hand side before the latter put in a good cross. But none of the Fulham attackers were alive to it.
Right! So how will Twente respond? They started the game so positively but an error of judgement cost them.
He was at a acute angle and produced an impudent finish with the outside of his boot that went in off the post. Top finish.
CHANCE!!! Dempsey strode up to the edge of the area before firing a low drive that is well saved. Decent effort.
John had a mazy run put could only produce a weak shot when he did have team-mates in a better position.
Johnson got away down the left and tried to feed the ball inside for Dembele but his pass deflected off the referee and into the path of a Twente player.
Twente are being very patient and enjoying a lot of the ball. It seems that Fulham are allowing to have the ball in not so dangerous areas.
Murphy tries to get a hold of the ball and take on the responsibility to make his team play. The skipper is the key man for them.
Well kick-off is just over five minutes away so go and grab a cup of tea, or if you want something stronger, go on. Why not?
Fulham have for a long period of time played a 4-4-2 system, but Jol is slowly trying to stamp his own identity on the team, and don't be surprised to see them playing a more Dutch attacking 4-3-3 system before too long.
Martin Jol side face a tough run of games in the Premier League and will hope to get a good result tonight to set them up for those.
Fulham reached the final of this competition in 2010 but were beaten by Atletico Madrid. But could this new look team match that feat?
Twente, though, have no injury problems and are expected to be at full strength for this trip to London.
Some Premier League managers view this competition as a nuisance. What approach do you think Martin Jol should adopt to this competition? Don't hold back email in to let us know.

Philippe Sanderos is struggling with an ankle injury, Dickson Etuhu is struggling with a thigh injury, while Aaron Hughes is out.
In the absence of the first choice pairing Andy Johnson and Moussa Dembele should be given the nod to line the attack.
The Cottagers will be without their new signing for the game as he is cup-tied but he will be available should they reach the knockout stages.
