Charlton skipper: We'll be trying to keep Wilfried Zaha quiet

CRYSTAL Palace star Wilfried Zaha will be watched closely by Charlton Athletic tomorrow, says Addicks captain Johnnie Jackson.
The 30-year-old is set to come up against the player ten years his junior at Selhurst Park and believes the winger's move to Manchester United is fully-deserving.
"We know Palace's strengths, and obviously Wilfried Zaha has got a big move to Manchester United," Jackson told Advertiser Sport.
"He's top player as everyone is fully aware, but we'll be trying to keep him quiet.
"I hope he has one of his quieter games and we'll see what we can do to combat that.
"The kid has got bundles and bundles of ability, and the fact that Manchester United have come in for him says it all really being the biggest club in the country.
"They would have done their homework and watched him plenty of times. They obviously like what they've seen and he's got potential as well to go on and be a top player.
"Good luck to him - he's done it at Championship level and now it's time to prove it at a higher one."
Meanwhile, Jackson says Charlton will be looking for the win in SE25, backed by 3,000 away supporters.
"We've experienced a big derby away at Millwall already this season, and we know going to Selhurst Park it's going to be a huge game and we'll have a lot of fans down there," he told Advertiser Sport.
"The away end has sold out so it's going to be lively, and it's a good chance for us to bounce back.
"I suppose we'll be looking for a bit of revenge from the last game at The Valley and a few bragging rights in south London.
"Like we do when we analyse every team, we'll be looking to exploit any weaknesses."
