🎄 Christmas countdown: Day 8

Daniel Nardiello nets late winner against Plymouth in Football League Trophy

8 December 2018

Described as one of the best atmospheres he's played in, it is a goal that is as fondly remembered by Daniel Nardiello as it is the Grecians faithful.

Going into the final minutes of City's Johnstone's Paint Trophy tie at Home Park - the first time the Grecians had played their Devon rivals for a number of years - the scores were level at 1-1.

Substitute Nardiello, annoyed at not getting onto the pitch earlier, had only been on for two minutes when Richard Logan pushed the ball into his path and he found the bottom corner with one of his very few touches in the match.

The goal game right in front of the travelling City fans and wild celebrations broke out as Logan jump the advertising hoardings to get into the away end.
