Can We Play Posh in FA Cup Please?

If we can beat QPR in the FA Cup replay at Turf Moor on the night of Tuesday 13th Jan, we will face an away visit to either West Brom or Peterborough in 4th Round.

Posh hero, Craig Mackail-Smith scored in the dying minutes to earn Peterborough an FA Cup third-round replay at home against Premier League opponents West Brom yesterday.

The two sides play their replay at London Road on the same night we face QPR at Turf Moor

The fourth-round ties will be played on the weekend of 24/25 January.

This potential 4th round tie again is hardly high-profile no matter who we face and if we must continue in this competition and can get past QPR then let's hope we can play against Peterbourough. This might be a banana skin waiting to happen but for purely selfish reasons this would be a great tie for me. I'm based in Cambridgeshire and they are the nearest ground to me unless you also count Histon!!

So on a scale of 1 (asleep) to 5 (wahey!!) how much does the potential 4th round tie excite you? 1 if its West Brom, 5 if its Posh for me

2 or 3 at best?!

1 if its WBA and probably a 3 if its Peterborough. Peterborough would only be a 3 because it would be a chance to revisit the first ever ground I visited back in 1990. Although, I have a sneaky feeling that Posh might just squeeze up in the playoffs and we will be playing them in a league match next year.

Would love a proper excuse to go down the road to Posh, bet its bloody Hawthorns though!
