Gayle entered Thursday's match as a substitute in the 72nd minute and scored the match's only goal in stoppage time as Crystal Palace defeated Aston Villa 1-0.

The goal was Gayle's third on the season, but his first since October 5. His playing time has decreased significantly since former manager, Ian Holloway, stepped down. Gayle has been in the Starting XI just once since Holloway stepped down in October and has played just 33 minutes with one shot attempt in five December matches.
