Alan Pardew to start at Crystal Palace on Friday, says Millen
Alan Pardew will start work as Crystal Palace boss on Friday, according to caretaker boss Keith Millen.
Pardew was in the stands to watch the London club draw 0-0 at Aston Villa on Thursday, with his appointment as Palace boss appearing to be imminent.
Millen says the 53-year-old will help prepare the team for Sunday's FA Cup third-round tie against Conference side Dover.
"We are preparing for Alan to come in tomorrow to start working," he said.
When asked if everything was on track for the former Newcastle manager to be appointed, Millen responded: "I think so. I don't think he would have been at the game if there was a problem. He wouldn't have been sitting in the stands.
"I kept the lads in the know from what I knew from the chairman. Before the game when we left the hotel we weren't sure but then I got a message to say Alan was coming.
"He didn't have any input during the game or before it, but he came in after and was pleased and proud with what he saw.
"He said we need to add more to our game to score more goals and win football matches but it's a good start for Alan to see us.
"Hopefully he can improve the team and make us better."

Caretaker boss Keith Millen has been in charge of Palace following the sacking of Neil Warnock
Pardew will be taking over a side in the relegation zone of the Premier League, with the point at Villa not enough to take them out of the bottom three.
Palace are now without a win in eight league games - a run dating back to the 3-1 home win over Liverpool on 23 November.
However, they have shown improvement in the last two games as they have claimed two battling points.
Millen lamented Yannick Bolasie's shot hitting the crossbar at Villa in what was the closest either side came to breaking the deadlock.
"It is tough to come here, Villa pass the ball well," he said. "We kept our discipline and shape and had the best chance of the game.
"I am delighted with the lads' commitment. But we need to take our chances to win games of football.
"If that goes in, the way we are set up, it would have been hard for them to get back into the game."
