🎄Christmas countdown: Day 20

Dean Moxey keeps Exeter City in business with stunning long-range strike against Doncaster Rovers

20 November 2018

It is difficult to argue that any one goal in the club's history could be more important than Dean Moxey's long-range strike against Doncaster Rovers in 2004.

Having been taken over by the supporters but still in the midst of financial turmoil left from the previous regime, City were in need of a good FA Cup run.

A second-round tie against League One side Doncaster Rovers wasn't the easiest of prospects, but after Steve Flack headed City in front, Dean Moxey produced a stunning 40-yard lob to book Exeter's place in the third round draw. The Grecians drew Manchester United away - a game that saved the club from financial ruin.
