Peterborough United v West Brom

West Brom will need to recover their winning form in their FA Cup fourth-round replay against Peterborough United at London Road on Wednesday.

The Baggies enter the match fresh off a 1-0 defeat to Newcastle United, making it five games without a win in the Premier League. They have also failed to win in their last four in all competitions, including the 2-2 draw against the Posh in the original tie at the Hawthorns.

Meanwhile, two tiers down in League One, Peterborough managed their first victory in four attempts with a 1-0 win over Chesterfield. While that 1-0 win won't boost the confidence too much ahead of their clash with top-flight opposition, they gave a plucky performance against Albion last time out and will fancy their chances in front of their own fans.

In injury news, the match will arrive too soon for West Brom's injury-stricken contingent, which includes Jonny Evans (hamstring), James Morrison (hamstring), Callum McManaman (ankle), and Chris Brunt (calf muscle).

For Peterborough, that recent league win came at a big cost for their defence, as both Ricardo Santos and Michael Smith picked up red cards that will rule them out of the cup encounter.
