Peterborough United will welcome Exeter City to the Weston Homes Stadium on Saturday, March 2, 2024, in a League One clash that could have implications for both ends of the table. Peterborough are currently in the playoff zone, while Exeter are fighting to avoid relegation. Here is our preview, prediction, team news, and lineups for this match.

Peterborough United have been in good form lately, having won four of their last five matches in all competitions. They have also scored 12 goals in that span, with Jonson Clarke-Harris leading the way with six. The Posh are currently fifth in the League One table, level on points with Derby County in second place, but with a game in hand.

Exeter City have been struggling for consistency this season, having won only nine of their 34 matches so far. They have also conceded 49 goals, the third-highest in the division. Their last match was a 1-1 draw at home against Fleetwood Town, where they failed to hold on to their lead. Exeter are currently 19th in the League One table, just three points above the relegation zone. They will need to improve their defensive solidity and their finishing if they want to survive.

The last time these two teams met was in November 2023, when Exeter won 3-2 at home, thanks to goals from Nombe, Scott, and Stansfield. Peterborough had taken the lead twice through Clarke-Harris and Mason-Clark, but could not prevent Exeter from claiming their first win over them since 1999.
