Palace edge Dagenham 2-1 in friendly

Premier League new boys Crystal Palace edged Dagenham and Redbridge 2-1 at Victoria Road in their pre-season opener.

Trialist Atdhe Nuhiu put the Eagles ahead 11 minutes before half-time, sweeping home Quincy Owusu-Abeyie's low cross, and Owen Garvan doubled their advantage from the penalty spot in the 56th minute after right-back Quade Taylor had been brought down by Afolabi Obafemi.

Medy Elito halved the deficit 12 minutes later, converting the second spot-kick of the game after Taylor had tripped Zavon Hines, but the Daggers could not find an equaliser.
