Cape Town - Crystal Palace captain Mile Jedinak says his side will be looking to hit the ground running in the Premier League this season.

"You want to get off to as good a start as you can," Jedinak told Sport24 on Thursday.

Jedinak is pleased that the new players have integrated well into the squad so far, something which he feels is very important.

The Eagles finished in 10th place last season after finding form under the guidance of Alan Pardew, who took over the reigns at the club in January.

Jedinak says the club have not yet set a specific target where they would like to finish this season.

"We have not had those sorts of discussions yet," said Jedinak.

While those discussion may yet materialise, Jedinak said: "It's all about building momentum."

"We are going to keep pushing the boundaries with ourselves.

"It's still the Premier League at the end of the day and it's going to be a tough proposition."

Jedinak says the squad is confident and is buoyed by the fact that the manager and the team did so well last year.

The Palace skipper added that by adding a few signings to the mix, the team will hopefully be able to take it up to the next level.

"The boys are feeling really good and the team camaraderie and team spirit is really good." 

Jedinak will feature in the Cape Town Cup starting on Friday along with the club's record signing Yohan Cabaye and on-loan striker Patrick Bamford.

Palace face SuperSport United at 17:45 at the Cape Town Stadium.
