25th October

Baggies stopper returns from injury

BEN Foster returned between the sticks for Albion’s Barclays Premier League clash at home to Crystal Palace today (ko 3pm).

The England international missed Monday’s 2-2 draw against Manchester United due to a calf injury sustained in training.

But he returns to face the Eagles, with Boaz Myhill, who impressed in Foster’s absence against the Red Devils, dropping back down among the substitutes.

Otherwise, head coach Alan Irvine named an unchanged line-up from Monday’s encounter at The Hawthorns.

Myhill aside, Albion’s bench also remained the same.

Albion: Foster, Wisdom, Dawson, Lescott, Pocognoli, Brunt, Gardner, Dorrans, Morrison, Sessegnon, Berahino.

Subs: Myhill, Gamboa, McAuley, Mulumbu, Blanco, Anichebe, Ideye.

Palace: Speroni, Kelly, Mariappa, Hangeland, Ward, Jedinak, Ledley, Zaha, Bolasie, Chamakh, Puncheon.

Subs: Hennessey, Fryers, Guedioura, Bannan,Puncheon, Doyle, Gayle.

Referee: Mark Clattenburg (Durham)
