Peterborough boss Darren Ferguson suggests that loan striker Saido Berahino could soon be in his starting line-up.

The 19-year old England youth international is on loan from West Bromwich Albion and Posh boss Ferguson feels he is close to a start after a couple of subs appearances since arriving from The Hawthorns.

"Saido is a very good player who could fit into any system we try,” he said.

"He can link up play with the ball at his feet or he can run in behind. He's a lovely young man whose attitude as well as his ability has impressed me since he's been with us.

"I don't bring players to the club on loan to make a good impact from the bench. He's a first-team squad member at a Premier League side so his ability can be taken for granted and he is certainly knocking on our door for a start.

"We are lucky to have a good vareity of striker at the club. Lee Tomlin and Nathaniel Mendez-Laing are also pushing for a start."
