CRYSTAL Palace captain Mile Jedinak joined in with pre-season training at the weekend following a rest from World Cup duty and is looking forward to facing Columbus Crew on Wednesday night. The match against the MLS outfit takes place at 12.30am BST, and Jedinak is pleased that the Eagles are involved internationally in pre-season. "It's going really well, we've had three sessions since we've touched down and the boys are working really hard in the climate," said the skipper. "That has been a little bit of a factor but we know it's all good and it's going to benefit us going back to the UK. "I know a little bit about the MLS. I am not schooled into the MLS but I have a mate (Tim Cahill) who plays in New York, and I know Columbus Crew have been around for a while. "Now we are here we can put a face to a name with the club, it's great. We have been welcomed with open arms and we are all grateful to be allowed to use the club's facilities. "We want to get through these training sessions without any injuries. It's all about hard work and preparation at this stage. "You never know, we might be able to come back in the future and experience it and enjoy ourselves a little bit more, but for what it's worth this has been great so far."
