Peterborough United boss Graham Westley points out one fault in West Ham United loanee Martin Samuelsen's game

West Ham Upton Park

West Ham United youngster Martin Samuelsen impressed with his display for Peterborough United against West Bromwich Albion in the FA Cup.

Peterborough United manager Graham Westley has told the Peterborough Evening Telegraph that Martin Samuelsen still needs to work on releasing the ball earlier.

Samuelsen is on loan with Posh from West Ham United and he has made a huge impression at the ABAX Stadium.

The 18-year-old attacking midfielder has dazzled the Posh crowd with his silky skills, and he captured the nation’s attention with his performance against West Bromwich Albion in the FA Cup last night.

In front of the BBC cameras, Samuelsen looked the most threatening player on the pitch, even against Premier League opposition, and Westley has tipped the youngster for the very top.

“Samuelsen is a fantastic talent destined for a great career,” the Posh boss said. “He showed how good he is tonight. He can hang on to the ball too long, but that will come with experience.”

Peterborough gave West Brom an almightily scare in the FA Cup last night, and almost pulled off the biggest shock in round four.

The Posh matched their top-flight opponents for 120 minutes, but they were knocked out of the competition cruelly on penalty kicks.

West Brom will now progress to face Reading in the last 16, while Posh return to normality at the weekend with a League One match against Bradford City.
