Not surprisingly, City legend Ryan Harley makes a number of appearances in our Christmas cracker calendar.
However as well as being a sweetly-struck volley, this goal was special because of its importance.
With City's match against Huddersfield Town entering the 82nd-minute the Grecians found themselves in the relegation places as results elsewhere conspired against them.
Then Paul Jones launched a long kick forward that George Friend flicked into the path of Harley and he found the bottom corner with a sweetly-struck half-volley. The goal gave the Grecians a 2-1 victory and lifted them to safety at Gillingham's expense.
