Ben Thatcher has been told by Charlton boss Alan Pardew that he has to play Saturday when Charlton face Portsmouth. Apparently Thatcher had asked not to but Charlton can`t afford to loose him.

I’m sure Pompey fans will give him much abuse come Saturday afternoon. Things will probably be sung and abuse shouted, but if you ask me he deserves everything he gets.
