New boss Pardew took charge of Palace for the first time after leaving Newcastle in Sunday's 4-0 FA Cup third-round victory away at Conference side Dover.
Newcastle owner Mike Ashley refused to view cup progress as a priority during Pardew's four years on Tyneside, but the former Eagles midfielder is now keen for Palace to fight on all fronts.
