Team news:

Worthington Cup final:

Mark Hughes finally makes his debut at the Millennium Stadium as a makeshift midfielder for Blackburn.

The 38-year-old manager of Wales steps in as Rovers are missing Tugay and Garry Flitcroft. Craig Short is also suspended and Lucas Neill ineligible so Nils-Eric Johansson fills in alongside Henning Berg.

For Spurs, Darren Anderton shrugs off a hamstring injury, while Ledley King recovers from tonsillitis to replace the cup-tied Dean Richards.

Leeds v Charlton:

Robbie Keane is handed his first club start for almost three months as Leeds make three changes to their Uefa Cup side.

Gary Kelly and Robbie Fowler also return as suspended trio Lee Bowyer, Danny Mills and Alan Smith all miss out.

Alan Curbishley also makes three changes to his Charlton team, with Paul Konchesky, Jonathan Fortune and Mathias Svensson replacing John Robinson, Mark Fish and Kevin Lisbie.

Sunderland v Newcastle:

Sunderland boss Peter Reid makes just one change to the team that beat Derby last week, Kevin Kilbane replacing the injured Julio Arca in midfield.

But new signing Patrick Mboma has to settle for a place on the bench as Kevin Phillips and Niall Quinn continue their strike partnership.

Newcastle make two changes, Jermaine Jenas making his first start since his 5m move from Nottingham Forest in place of Jamie McClen.

Nikos Dabizas returns to the defence in place of Robbie Elliott.
