Graham Westley hopes his high-scoring Peterborough side will gain their just rewards for their attacking endeavours in tonight's FA Cup fourth-round replay against West Bromwich Albion.

The League One side, who twice came from behind to draw 2-2 at the Hawthorns, are the second highest scorers in the English League, behind League One promotion rivals Gillingham, and Westley sees the televised Cup tie as the perfect opportunity to show what his side are all about.

"The FA Cup is ideal for a club like ours," Westley said. "It is a cup that rewards teams that play with flair, imagination, an attacking mentality, some devil. We've got all of that about us."
