Football: Weekend guide to the Premiership: Football: Tomorrow's Other Match (4pm): Charlton v Manchester United Last season: No fixture

CHARLTON WILL be without England U-21 defender Danny Mills for tomorrow's match with Manchester United. Mills is suspended for the game at The Valley after accumulating five bookings this season but midfielder Neil Redfearn is available again after serving a one-match ban. Defender Richard Rufus is available for selection after recovering from a calf strain, but midfielder Paul Mortimer is ruled out with an ankle injury. Curbishley is likely to choose goalkeeper Simon Royce tomorrow, the former Southend player having replaced Sasa Ilic against Newcastle. The Yugoslav was blamed for one of the goals in the recent draw with Newcastle, where the kind of fighting spirit the Addicks will need to survive was on display.
