Weston Homes Stadium

A look ahead to the Bank Holiday Monday meeting with Exeter City (3pm).

Peterborough United welcome Exeter City to the Weston Homes Stadium on Bank Holiday Monday (3pm) with Darren Ferguson’s men looking to cement their spot in the Sky Bet League One top six ahead of the final run of five fixtures.

The Grecians have a tough run-in, facing plenty of sides in the promotion mix and put up a spirited display against Bolton Wanderers at St. James Park on Friday, going down 1-0 to a first half strike. Exeter came from behind to secure a very late 3-2 victory in the return fixture earlier in the campaign.


Posh were in training on Saturday for a warm-down following the 3-0 win at Shrewsbury Town with the exception of midfielder Jack Taylor who was given a day off to spend with his new-born child after an emotional seven days.

Jeando Fuchs, Ben Thompson, Joel Randall and Kell Watts didn’t travel to Shropshire on Good Friday and will be hopeful of inclusion in the 18, although Darren Ferguson hinted that there isn’t anyone currently struggling with injury following that victory over Shrewsbury.

Sonny Cox is pushing for a start for the Grecians after coming off the bench for the final 20 minutes. The Academy graduate could be one of a number of changes that Gary Caldwell may make to the starting line-up with Jake Caprice another who could come into the XI.


With former Posh attacking midfielder Jevani Brown unavailable due to an off the pitch incident, the goals of Sam Nombe (pictured below) have been key. The former Milton Keynes Dons front man is the leading scorer at St. James Park, he is quick, offers good movements and comes alive in the penalty area, as he proved in the 3-2 victory for Exeter over Posh earlier in the campaign.

Sam Nombe


“I like the way that Exeter play. When I was taking my break from management, I actually watched them in the opening few weeks against Lincoln City and was impressed with their performance. I think they should be very happy with what they have done this year, they got promoted last term and they haven’t had any issues holding their own at this level. Sam Nombe is a very good player, they have good options in midfield and we know that we will have to play well to win the game,” Darren Ferguson said.


Tickets are on sale at www.theposhtickets.com and via the Weston Homes Stadium Box Office. Exeter fans will be accommodated in the away section of the Main North Stand. The Deskgo Stand is closed for this particular fixture.
