Exeter City 3-2 Peterborough United

Exeter staged a great late comeback to claim a narrow 3–2 League One victory over Peterborough at St James Park with Jevani Brown haunting his former club with an injury-time winner.

Exeter started well and Archie Collins forced a superb save from Lucas Bergstrom after 28 minutes, but from Brown’s resulting corner, Tim Dieng soared higher to lob the ball into the net to give Exeter the lead.

Peterborough missed a glorious equalizing chance when Jonson Clarke-Harris headed wide when he was unmarked six yards from goal, but he made no mistake moments later when Collins fumbled the ball across the goal and into an angle from 18 yards, five minutes. before half time.

Posh started well after the break with Ricky Jade-Jones coming close twice and Clarke-Harris forced Jamal Blackman into another clever save, but the goal the away team deserved came with eight minutes to go when Ephron Mason-Clark crashed into a good volley at the far post from a deep cross by Ben Thompson.

However, Exeter struck back when Jake Caprice’s cross was headed in by Josh Key and substitute Sam Nombe finished from close range.

Then, in the first minute of stoppage time, Jay Stansfield sent Brown into overdrive and hit a wonder shot from 20 yards to complete an impressive comeback.
