A look ahead to the Sky Bet League One fixture with Exeter City on Tuesday evening (7.45pm).

Peterborough United make the long journey to Exeter City in Sky Bet League One action on Tuesday evening (7.45pm) with Darren Ferguson’s men looking to bounce back from their first league defeat of 2024, which was suffered at the hands of Wigan Athletic.

In fact, the Latics, who won 3-2 at the Weston Homes Stadium on Saturday, completed the double over Posh – ensuring they were the only side to have beaten Ferguson’s men in League One since September.

Exeter go into the game on the back of a narrow 1-0 defeat to Bristol Rovers, but the Grecians have enjoyed an upturn in fortunes of late, which culminated in an eye-catching victory against high-flying Barnsley at Oakwell.


Jadel Katongo picked up a knock on Saturday, but trained on Monday without any issues so should keep his spot at right-back. Kwame Poku is still on track to be back for the home clash with Port Vale, but Will Blackmore remains side-lined.

Striker Jacob Wakeling picked up a nasty ankle injury in the 3-0 win over Tottenham Hotspur for the under 21s and will undergo a scan to confirm the extent of the damage. Exeter swooped for former Posh striker Mo Eisa ahead of the transfer deadline and he could line-up against his former employees.


Jack Aitchison (pictured below) led the line against the Pirates on Saturday and the former Barnsley man will be keen to cause problems for the Posh back-line. A Scotland under 19 international, he has spent time playing in Scotland as well as Stevenage and Forest Green Rovers south of the border. The 23-year-old was part of the Celtic youth set-up.

“Exeter have come through a tough patch in terms of results and fair play to them for doing so. Gary Caldwell is a decent manager and they are quite fluid in the way that they play, they can move into different formations and they have different patterns to the way that they play, but the main focus is on us and trying to bounce back from the weekend defeat,” Darren Ferguson said.


Just under 300 tickets have been sold for the fixture at St. James Park. Tickets are available to purchase on the day but there is a slight price rise.


Match passes are available for domestic and overseas subscribers priced at £10. Audio passes are available for £5 with commentary from Nilesh Patel and Chris Dowsett.


Ephron Mason-Clark was on target as Posh ran out 3-1 winners over Exeter City in April 2023 with Jonson Clarke-Harris (pictured scoring below) and an own goal from Alex Hartridge completing the scoring at the Weston Homes Stadium.

Archie Collins (pictured below in action for Exeter City) and Joel Randall are very much looking forward to returning to the South West with both set to feature against their former clubs with Collins set to make his first return to St. James Park since departing in the summer.

As previously mentioned, Mo Eisa is expected to feature against his former side after agreeing a switch from MK Dons ahead of the deadline.

Among the others to have played for both include; Christy Pym, Richard Logan, Mathew Gill, Paul Jones, Nicky Ajose, Colin Daniel, Arron Davies, Bobby Olejnik, Tom Nichols, Reuben Reid, Garry Kimble and David Pleat.
