Football: Weekeng guide to the premiership - Everton v Charlton Athletic Last season: No fixture
Saturday 24 April 1999
Alan Curbishley, the Charlton manager, has an almost full-strength squad to choose from with right-back Danny Mills available after suspension. Goalkeeper Simon Royce has started training after his injury lay-off but is well short of match fitness and Andy Petterson will continue in goal. Centre-back Richard Rufus could be playing his last game of the season unless the club manage to overturn his ban for being sent off against Leeds last Saturday.
Joint leading scorer Clive Mendonca could return to the starting line- up in place of either Andy Hunt and Martin Pringle with a lack of goals - just five in the last eight games - a major worry for Curbishley after Tuesday's 4-1 defeat by Spurs sent them back into the relegation zone.
Everton (from): Myhre, Weir, Short, Watson, Unsworth, Ball, Barmby, Hutchison, Dacourt, Gemmill, Jeffers, Campbell, Cadamarteri, Bakayoko, Grant, Oster, Degn, Ward.
Charlton Athletic (from): Petterson, Powell, Brown, Youds, Mills, Tiler, Rufus, Barnes, Bowen, Kinsella, Redfearn, Hunt, Pringle, Bright, Stuart, K Jones, S Jones, Mortimer, Konchesky, Parker, Barness, Salmon.
Referee: P Alcock.
