Pardew plays down Zaha injury

Crystal Palace manager Alan Pardew says the ankle injury Wilfried Zaha suffered against FC Cincinnati on Saturday is not serious.

Zaha left the Nippert Stadium after the Eagles' 2-0 win in a protective boot and on crutches following a tackle from Cincinnati right-back Jamie Dell in the 72nd minute.

"He went over on his ankle but hopefully he'll just have a little bit of swelling on that - it might take a couple of days to go down, that's all," he told the Croydon Advertiser.

Palace's medical team will now assess the injury over the weekend ahead of Palace's friendly against Vancouver Whitecaps on Tuesday.

Jordan Mutch opened the scoring for Palace in the first half, and Zaha netted Palace's second goal in the 63rd minute in front of a record Ohio football crowd of 35,061.

The former Manchester United player linked up well with new signing Andros Townsend, who joined the Eagles in a £13m transfer from Newcastle on the first day of the summer transfer window.

"Wilfried’s a similar player to me," Townsend said after the match.

"He likes to take people on and get shots in.

"So hopefully as the season goes on we can link up, create and score some goals for Crystal Palace."
