Charlton make the short trip to Selhurst Park and for Warnock his friendship with Pardew will go out of the window for 90 mins.
"I know Alan well. I nearly sent him off in a charity match the other day," joked Warnock. "He did a bad tackle. I had to give him a severe reprimand. I like Alan.
"I see him socially and with our families. Everyone knows about the managers I don't get on with but Alan's not one of those. We've had our rows but we soon put them to bed.
"You don't need any motivation against Charlton. It's a cracking match. It's my first one at home. You go to the Valley and it's difficult and I expect we'll make it difficult for them here. That's how rivalries are.
"Charlton will expect to come and take maximum points because of our position and quite rightly so."
