West Bromwich Albion suffered defeat to Norwich City on Saturday.
A goal from Robbie Brady was ultimately enough to give the Canaries all three points as they climbed out of the relegation zone, but Foster was frustrated with the result and explained that West Brom’s performances in training had suggested three points were ripe for the taking.
“The frustrating thing is that training has been great,” Foster told wba.co.uk, “the best we’ve had all season. The lads have been on fire and we thought we looked good for three points but football doesn’t work like that.”
West Brom appeared to have turned a corner following recent criticism of manager Tony Pulis’s tactics, beating Crystal Palace and Manchester United and drawing with leaders Leicester City in their previous three outings.
But they could not build on that and ultimately lost to a Norwich side fighting for their top-flight future.
Now it is up to Pulis to maintain their fine work in training while also getting more points on the board.
Speaking about the West Brom manager, Foster added, “The gaffer won’t let is forget about that and will have us back in training to out that right.”
