Exeter   2 - 2   Peterborough

Exeter 2-2 Peterborough

Exeter 2-2 Peterborough

High-flying Peterborough salvaged a draw against Exeter thanks to a late strike from substitute Lee Tomlin.

Posh took the lead after half an hour when Troy Archibald-Henville put the ball into the back of his own net.

Exeter came from behind to take the lead thanks to Daniel Nardiello's curling shot and Jamie Cureton's close-range effort.

However, Tomlin grabbed a late point for Peterborough with a low shot from the edge of the area.

Peterborough may look at the game as an opportunity missed, as a win would have seen them take top spot in League One.

They looked dangerous every time they went forward in the first half, and took a deserved lead when Nathaniel Mendez-Laing's cross was put into his own net by Archibald-Henville.

But after the break, United equalised when John O'Flynn slipped in Nardiello, whose shot rattled the underside of the bar before crossing the line.

And the Grecians must have been eyeing their fourth straight league victory when Liam Sercombe's cross found Cureton who rammed home to turn the game on its head.

But Posh were not going away quietly, and Tomlin came off the bench to strike from 20 yards to earn Peterborough a deserved draw.


Exeter City manager Paul Tisdale told BBC Radio Devon:

"The way we played today was fantastic, and I think it shows how far we've come that we go toe to toe with a team sitting top of the table coming to St James Park.

"We gave them such a run for their money and we played with such a positive style that it was a fantastic game of football.

"The side is getting better, the individuals are getting better and the pitch is fantastic so it bodes well for a very good season."

Peterborough manager Gary Johnson told BBC Radio Cambridgeshire:

"It was a super football match, we were proud to be part of it.

"Both teams will be a little bit disappointed to be leaving with a point, but be very proud about being part of such a good match.

"Both sets of fans can be pleased with the result."
