Peterborough were forced to come from behind to claim a point after a pulsating 2-2 draw at Exeter.

An entertaining first half was dominated by Peterborough, who looked dangerous every time they went forward.

But when they broke the scoring on 29 minutes, it was through Exeter defender Troy Archibald-Henville, who stooped to head Nathaniel Mendez-Laing's cross past Paul Jones and into his own net.

Exeter had a penalty shout turned away when Gabriel Zakuani appeared to handle Daniel Nardiello's shot, while Zakuani should also have scored when he headed wide from close range inside the opening five minutes.

Exeter equalised nine minutes into the second half when John O'Flynn slipped in Nardiello and his shot rattled off the underside of the crossbar before crossing the line.

The Grecians went in front when Liam Sercombe's cross found Jamie Cureton and he took one touch before ramming the ball into the corner.

But their hopes of a victory were denied by Lee Tomlin, who came off the bench to send a low shot into the bottom corner from 20 yards for a deserved share of the spoils.

Both teams had chances to win it late on with Seth Nana Ofori-Twumasi's shot deflecting just over for the Posh, while Archibald-Henville saw his header hacked off the line.
