City at full-strength for Posh trip.

City at full-strength for Posh trip.

City travel to high-flying Peterborough this weekend looking to continue their excellent form away from home.

Recent successes at Notts County and Charlton have seen the Grecians take their tally of away wins this season to five. But with only one home win in 2011 City`s form has been somewhat inconsistent.

Peterborough will provide stiff opposition for sure. The Posh currently sit fourth in League One and are by far the top scorers at home in the division, finding the net at on no fewer than 48 occasions at London Road.

City are boosted by the returns of defenders Richard Duffy and Billy Jones. Both missed the midweek 1-1 draw with Tranmere but are now back in training.

This means that Paul Tisdale has the luxury of a fully fit squad to select from.

Peterborough have striker Lee Tomlin available again after he recovered from a recent illness.

Lee Frecklington (Hernia) and Dave Hibbert (Knee) are long-term absentees.

Goalkeeper Paul Jones is available to play for Peterborough despite being on loan from the Grecians, however It is likely that he will have to settle for a place on the bench with Joe Lewis the preferred choice in goal.

When the sides met at St James` Park back in September the teams played out an exciting 2-2 draw. Daniel Nardiello and Jamie Cureton scoring City`s goals.
