West Bromwich Albion have a vital star available once again.
West Bromwich Albion have received a big boost early in the new year with the return to action of goalkeeper Ben Foster.
Foster has not featured for Tony Pulis’s side all season, with Boaz Myhill the first-choice stopper and summer signing Anders Lindegaard acting as back-up. But the 32-year-old’s return will be a huge boost for the Baggies, as well as for a player with an eye on this summer’s European Championships.
Foster last played for West Brom back in March 2015 in a Premier League clash against Stoke City, and he could now be set for a timely return in the FA Cup third round match against Bristol City at The Hawthorns this weekend.
That is a decision Pulis will have to make but there is little doubt when he is back to full fitness he will be back between the posts on a regular basis, and in some ways will be like a new signing for the club at a time when others could yet follow.
