Despite long being the most dangerous striker West Brom have at their disposal, Saido Berahino has spent large periods since his last loan spell away from the Hawthorns in first-team exile.
Starved of Premier League action to the point that he has been substituted in seven of the meagre eight starts the Baggies have afforded him in 25 games this term, the knockout competitions of English football have once more been his score-lust-succouring salvation.
Berahino has netted 13 goals in 12 combined FA Cup and Capital One Cup fixtures for West Brom over the last three seasons.
Tonight, the England Under-21 star will “definitely play at Peterborough, ” according to Throstles manager Tony Pulis and he is 7/5 to net against the side he represented on loan in 2012/13.
He bagged a brace against Posh at the Hawthorns on January 30 and can be backed to notch two or more again at the ABAX Stadium at 6/1, or 33/1 to hit a hat-trick.
That he relishes sating his hunger for goals on lower league foes shouldn’t be doubted after the Burundi-born marksman ransacked Non League Gateshead for four goals in the 2014/15 FA Cup.
A season earlier, he had announced himself as an attacker of great potential with a hat-trick against Newport County in the League Cup.
As well as the Borough, Bristol City have also felt Berahino’s wrath in the FA Cup this term – it would take a brave punter to bet against him adding to his tally this evening.

West Brom are even money favourites for victory in the fourth-round replay, with their hosts 11.4 and the normal time draw a 5/2 shot.
