Weekend Preview - April 9th

In my recap, I forgot to mention Yun Suk Young who got pulled at HT last weekend in favor of an offensive player, and they stuck with it again without him midweek.  With relegation looking more certain, we'll see if Yun figures into Charlton's plan at all.

Hong Jeong Ho -- He missed some training midweek so it will depend on his health. It's unclear how fit HJH is right now and if there were better health among Augsburg's CHs, if HJH would even be getting dressed.  But they do need him in a critical match in relegation fight this weekend.

Ji Dong Won -- Looks like he's still out this week but maybe he can sneak in to be a sub.

Koo Ja Cheol -- Suspended due to yellows.  What a stupid yellow to have picked up.

Kim Jin Su -- I don't think he'll make squad until they implode or injuries.

Lee Chung Yong -- Looks like LCY is not in Pardew's plans and will be on bench if there aren't enough of AP's preferred players to suitup.

Ki Sung Yueng -- With Swansea looking messy last week, you have to wonder if Guidolin will entertain the idea of going with 4-2-3-1 which looked good vs Chelsea at start of season. With all CMs looking limited in one major way or another, will be hard to predict.  Britton is doubt for this weekend so Ki has a much bigger chance at starting.

Park Joo Ho -- With the Revierderby this weekend, don't think PJH will have a role to play.

Son Heung Min -- With Lamela returning to training, Son will likely return to the bench and have to look to impress as a sub.

Suk Hyun Jun -- With offense sputtering, SHJ may get the look at starting this weekend, but will come off the bench if they need offense and he doesn't start.
