Charlie Nicholas provides us with the last of his FA Cup fourth-round replay predictions, as West Bromwich Albion visit Peterborough United on Wednesday.
Graham Westley's Sky Bet League 1 side came from behind twice at The Hawthorns to earn a replay back at the ABAX Stadium.
Here's what Soccer Saturday pundit Nicholas is predicting for the replay…

Peterborough v West Brom (Wednesday, 7.45pm)
If there's a Premier League team in danger right now, then it's West Brom. Crystal Palace are getting mentioned like Watford were a few weeks ago, but it's West Brom who are in danger right now. The crowd don't like the style Tony Pulis has them playing and now the results are failing, they have the right to question it.
You see Saido Berahino sat on the bench and he's clearly not match fit, but that's because he's not starting games. Salomon Rondon looks nowhere close to a £12m signing and you still keep looking at Berahino to score the goals they need.
Darren Fletcher has been the one good player, but maybe he's hitting fatigue. The other seemingly reliable players seem to be making questionable decisions at the moment.
There's a great incentive for Peterborough and they always score goals, just one less than League 1's leading scorers, and London Road, which always has a great atmosphere, will be rocking.
West Brom just don't do well in the cup competitions, they won't prioritise this game because of their league troubles and I can see the Posh prevailing.
Charlie predicts: Peterborough to win 2-1 and Jon Taylor to score first (85/1 with Sky Bet)
