Striker set to line-up against former club in pre-season match,

Dwight Gayle could face his former Dagenham & Redbridge team mates when Crystal Palace travel to Victoria Road for a pre-season friendly.

Daggers have announced they will face the Eagles on August 3 with kick off at 7.30pm and is the second home fixture confirmed following the news earlier this month that Charlton Athletic will also be visiting east London.

Gayle made his Dagenham debut in August 2012 before moving on to Peterborough United three months later and joining Palace in the summer of 2013.

When the teams last clashed in a friendly two years ago, Gayle played the second half for the south Londoners in a 2-1, with Medy Elito netting for the hosts.
