Foster ruled out with knee injury

17 March 2015

Myhill set to deputise for injured Foster

BEN Foster has been ruled out for a minimum of four weeks after scans revealed a damaged knee cartilage.

The Baggies No1 was forced off during the second half of Albion's 1-0 victory over Stoke City on Saturday.

It means Foster will also miss the coming internationals, with the England man due to stay behind for further recovery and rehabilitation.

Boaz Myhill will deputise during Foster's absence, with young goalkeeper Jack Rose expected to step up to the bench.

Head coach Tony Pulis said: "It's rotten news for Ben because he's been so consistent.

"He kept seven clean sheets in 10 games but we have a very able man to step forward in Boaz, who has performed well when he's come into the team.

"We've got the international break coming up which I hope will give our medical team the chance to work on Ben's rehab and we will reassess later."
