Glenn Hoddle is hoping Manchester United do not rest their major stars on Saturday &mdash&#59; because it will be a better experience for the kids.<P class=MsoNormal>With only Chris Perry and Steffen Freund back from the treatment table and into the squad &mdash&#59; but unlikely to feature &mdash&#59; it means the likes of Alton Thelwell, Anthony Gardner and Simon Davies can add to their growing CVs by playing the Premiership champions.<P class=MsoNormal>United have rested players of late and it was suggested to Glenn that, with having to play all the youngsters again, it would ideal if they did so again.<P class=MsoNormal>But Glenn countered: &ldquo&#59;I don&rsquo&#59;t think it will do us any favours United playing a lesser side. It will be very interesting. Anthony Gardner will learn a lot from defending 90 minutes against the quality United have.<P class=MsoNormal>&ldquo&#59;In many ways this is another great experience for these young boys.<P class=MsoNormal>&ldquo&#59;People like Simon Davies, Anthony Gardner, Gary Doherty &mdash&#59; they are all still under 21. If they hammered, they&rsquo&#59;ll get hammered and learn a lot of lessons but if we get a good result and play well then we&rsquo&#59;ll learn more on the positive side.&rdquo&#59;<P class=MsoNormal>&nbsp&#59;<P class=MsoNormal>&nbsp&#59;<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p><P class=MsoNormal>&nbsp&#59;<o:p></o:p><P class=MsoNormal>&nbsp&#59;<o:p></o:p>
