📝 Big Match Preview: City v Peterborough United

All you need to know ahead of City's match with Peterborough in the Checkatrade Trophy

4 December 2018

Exeter City return to Checkatrade Trophy action when they welcome Peterborough United in a 7.15pm kick-off at St James Park.

After sealing themselves a place in the second round of the competition after claiming top spot in their group, the Grecians come up against Steve Evans’ side looking to push on in the competition.

Ahead of the match, manager Matt Taylor said: “Those lads who have played in the competition so far have earned the right to play in the next round. We will use the game as we have done throughout this season in terms of minutes for the 'so called' fringe players, or the ones on who haven’t been getting the game time with the first team recently, and also an opportunity for our younger players to step up into the first team environment.

LAST TIME WE MET

This will be the side’s first meeting since November 2013 when the Grecians travelled to London Road in the first round of the FA Cup.

It was United who came out on top on the day, and despite a goalless first 70 minutes, the home side struck through Britt Assombalonga before Nathaniel Mendez-Laing secured the win for the Posh.

The sides last met in November 2013

The Grecians exit the Checkatrade Trophy

4 December 2018

Sponsored by

Headers from Ivan Toney and Jason Cummings saw Peterborough emerge 2-0 winners in the Checkatrade Trophy clash at St James Park.

Despite defending well and having a few chances in the first half, two second half strikes from the Peterborough men took the game away from City against their League One opponents.

Match Report sponsored by Speedy Freight

Grecians boss Matt Taylor made three changes from the side that beat Bristol Rovers at St James Park in their final game of the group stage, with Lee Martin, Dean Moxey and Craig Woodman returning to the side in place of Jonathan Forte and Dara O’Shea, who were substitutes on the night, and Luke Croll.

The visitors made two changes from their FA Cup tie against Bradford on Saturday; Siriki Dembele and Matt Godden dropped out for Jason Cummings and George Cooper.

City did well to fashion an opening of sorts a few minutes into the game when Matt Jay capitalised on a mis-hit clearance from Rhys Bennett, and looked like they might take the lead after Peterborough played themselves into trouble in the aftermath, with both Jay and Chiedozie Ogbene threatening to capitalise, but the visitors somehow escaped unscathed.

Both sides had chances to take the lead in the opening stages – Abrahams broke through for City, but was shepherded out to a tight angle and his effort was saved by O’Malley, before Peterborough countered and Cummings had a golden chance to open the scoring, but James Hamon read the chip and stood tall to keep the League One side out.

Hamon nearly gifted the visitors a bizarre goal in the immediate aftermath, storming out of his area to clear, though it fell kindly for Louis Reed to strike the ball first-time towards the vacated net – the spin of the ball took it onto the post, however, and not the inside of the City net. The away side started to pile on the pressure, and Moxey was required to clear Toney’s header off the line just before the half-hour mark to keep the game scoreless.

Abrahams then had a great chance to put City ahead in the 36th minute, latching onto Ogbene’s incisive through ball, but O’Malley was out quickly to make the save with his feet.

A defensive miscommunication a couple of minutes into the second-half was rescued only by a superb last-ditch challenge from Aaron Martin, who was able to poke the ball away from Cummings and back to Hamon. A superb free-kick from Maddison, given after a foul by Woodman, then struck the City bar as Peterborough continued their pursuit of the opening goal.

Hamon was called into action again for City just after the hour mark, making a good save at his near post to deny Toney once again, but the striker – involved in an altercation minutes earlier, which saw him booked for an off-the-ball incident – was on hand to head in from the resulting corner routine to score the goal the visitors had been threatening.

Peterborough then doubled their lead in the 77th minute, when Collins lost the ball in midfield, and Peterborough pushed forward, finding Maddison on the right-hand side – his delicate, looped cross to the back post was met by Cummings, who nodded in from close range.

Peterborough had a chance to grab a third in the dying seconds after a fantastic touch from Toney allowed him to release Maddison down the Peterborough right, but his tame shot was deflected wide. The set-piece routine resulted in a shot from Godden, but Hamon was equal to it, making a superb diving save.
