Curbs: We won't underestimate giant-killers

CURBISHLEY: "They will pose one almighty banana skin"
CURBISHLEY: "They will pose one almighty banana skin"

Charlton v Yeovil

CHARLTON will treat Yeovil with the same respect shown to Rochdale when the renowned FA Cup giant-killers visit The Valley for Saturday's fourth round tie.

Manager Alan Curbishley had Rochdale watched four times before beating them 4-1 in the third round.

He insists that his homework on the League 2 leaders has been just as painstaking.

Curbishley said: "We know that a lot of people will be looking to produce another of their famous upsets on Saturday.

"They have everything to gain and nothing to lose so it's essential that we go into the game fully focused because they will pose one almighty banana skin."

Curbishley hinted that he might change formation from 4-2-3-1 to a 4-4-2 to accommodate the return of striker Francis Jeffers, who was deeply disappointed to be left out of Saturday's side for the return to first club Everton.

Youngsters under the age of 16 will be able to watch the tie for £5. Adults will be charged £20, with admission £15 for senior citizens and under 18s.

Should a replay be necessary it will be at Huish Park on Tuesday, February 8.
