📝 Match Preview: Peterborough United (H)

All you need to know ahead of Saturday's match

11 November 2022

After three games in a row on the road, Exeter City return to action at St James Park to face Peterborough United in a 3pm kick-off on Saturday.

The match is manager Gary Caldwell's first in charge at SJP and sees the Grecians take on the Posh in League action for the first time since 2010!

City will be looking to build on Saturday's late win in the Emirates FA Cup over Port Vale, thanks to Archie Collins stunning strike as they welcome a Peterborough side that sit in fourth place in the table.

Gary Caldwell's Thoughts

After three straight games on the road, the Grecians face Peterborough United in a 3pm kick-off on Saturday and City's manager can't wait to experience St James Park.

"I can't wait as it's been a long time coming." said Gary. "I'm looking forward to meeting the home crowd and trying to get the three points." 

City will take confidence from Saturday's late win at Port Vale in the FA Cup as they face a side which is tipped to be promoted from League One.

"It was a big win on Saturday. I thought we deserved to win it based on the second-half performance and the way the players reacted to losing a goal so late in the game which was a big blow, but they got straight back up and scored a magnificent goal. The celebrations at the end were great as they deserved that.

"We've watched them, we know their strenghts and weaknesses but we are evolving as a team and we have to keep doing that. We've had a week of full training where physically we've trained at another level and we want to see how the players take that on, on Saturday so I'm hopeful we see progress in many areas on Saturday."

City picked up a point against the Posh at SJP in September 2010. The Grecians fell behind to an unfortunate Troy Archibald-Henville OG before taking the lead through Daniel Nardiello and Jamie Cureton. Peterborough would nick a point late on through Lee Tomlin.
