Bucs have named a 31-man squad for the 2012/13 season and if Palacios' word is anything to go by, he is happy with the squad at his disposal.
"I don't think at this moment we have time for trialists or to experiment. I think we are covered for every position," he says.
Nigerian striker Yero Bello was on trial with the club recently, but he won't be signing with the club as Palacios insists Pirates have enough firepower.
"We have six strikers including the new signing from Zimbabwe (Takesure Chinyama)," he adds.
Furthermore, Mark Mayambela, who apparently could be offloaded, is still very much part of the team… for now at least.
Pirates' 31-man squad for the 2012/13 season:
Goalkeepers: Moeneeb Josephs, Senzo Meyiwa, Brighton Mhlongo, Ntando Nkala
Defenders: Rooi Mahamutsa, Lucky Lekgwathi, Siyabonga Sangweni, Mbongeni Gumede, Robyn Johannes, Happy Jele, Bheki Nzunga, Thabo Matlaba, Patrick Phungwayo, Ayanda Gcaba
