Dickson Etuhu has warned Fulham must secure their top flight status before setting lofty targets.[LNB] The Cottagers currently occupy a top half perch in the Premier League table with 10 games of the season remaining.[LNB]They remain in the hunt for a European place, with seventh spot likely to be enough to book a place in next year's Uefa Europa League.[LNB]However, the club are yet to reach the 40-point mark and Etuhu believes any thoughts of continental competition must be put to rest until safety is guaranteed.[LNB]"We don't want to speak about Europe. None of the boys talk about that," the midfielder said in the Daily Express.[LNB]"We just want to get to 40 points and take it from there.[LNB]"That's not a bad mentality. We're just being realistic. Last year we almost went down.[LNB]"It's only after we've got to that safety mark of 40 to 43 points that we can go out, express ourselves and start thinking about Europe.[LNB]"Right now none of the boys are thinking about it."[LNB]
