Rodgers pulls a cracker

Sheffield Wednesday 0, Exeter City 1

This was Exeter City's bumper Christmas bonus. The cracker which striker Peter Rodgers pulled in the fifth minute, when he hoodwinked the Wednesday keeper with a lob from 25 yards, contained enough surprises to give City their first win in nine games.

Goalkeeper Ian Main was almost unbeatable while his crossbar came to the rescue when Ian Mellor tried a late headed equaliser.
