Betting Tip: West Bromwich @ 11/10 with betfred

Peterborough United won at Chesterfield on Saturday although the 1-0 scoreline didn’t tell the full story.

New signing Tom Nichols gave Posh the lead before Michael Smith and Ricardo Santos were red-carded. That means suspension for the defensive duo for this FA Cup replay.

Nichols is cup-tied for the clash and Conor Washington has recently left to join QPR, so United won’t be as capable of causing a shock as it might look on first glance.

There’s also the fact that the winner of this match will play Reading away in the fifth round. If that’s not an opportunity to claim a quarter-final spot, then what is?

West Brom were held at home in the previous round by Bristol City before claiming a 1-0 win at Ashton Gate. We can see something similar at London Road, with Peterborough’s weekend win the first in five matches.

They have recently failed to beat or score against Southend and Burton at home, with Washington having been a big player for them previously, while Tony Pulis will want a reaction after losing at St James’ Park on Saturday.

The Baggies supporters will not tolerate a reserve team surrendering meekly in this clash, with Saido Berahino and Salomon Rondon set to come into the side and Spurs midfielder Alex Pritchard might also get an opportunity.
