Crystal Palace manager Alan Pardew says there are no injuries to report on in his squad and that he wants to try and win the Cape Town Cup.

The English Premier League side are in Cape Town along with Sporting Clube de Portugal, SuperSport United and Ajax Cape Town to contest the first ever Cape Town Cup.

The manager said: “Our preparations have been solid. All our internationals have come back in good health and we have added several important players like (Yohan) Cabaye and (Patrick) Bamford.

"We also hope to seal the transfer of Alex McCarthy, a goalkeeper, from QPR by today," Pardew explained.

"So, overall we have a good feeling, we want to continue the momentum from last season and so we will try to put on an entertaining show when we play this weekend.

"We will put out a competitive team to try and win the trophy. Everybody that is here will play subject to fitness, and right now all the players are fit."

Palace will face SuperSport United at 17h45 on Friday night followed by Ajax Cape Town against Sporting at 20h15. Matches are at Cape Town Stadium.
