Foster reflects on Everton disappointment

Baggies look to bounce back against Cobblers and Boro

BEN Foster felt Albion were unfortunate to come away on the losing side as they were undone 2-1 by Everton on Saturday.

The Baggies went ahead courtesy of Gareth McAuley's early header but the visiting Toffees clinched all three points courtesy of Kevin Mirallas and Gareth Barry.

Albion will now look to get back on track when they travel to Northampton Town in the EFL Cup on Tuesday before hosting Middlesbrough at The Hawthorns in the Premier League on Sunday.

Goalkeeper Foster on Everton defeat...
"I thought we were a bit unlucky to be honest. 
"It was a fairly even game with chances at either end, maybe a bit unlucky that we just didn't get the odd nice bobble here and there.
"We probably didn't finish our chances as well as we could and should have, but fair play to Everton, they're a decent team and they'll do well this season."

On creating plenty of chances...
"Yeah definitely. I think you saw again how hard Salomon (Rondon) works, he's just so big and strong up there. He's going to cause everyone a lot of trouble this season.
"I thought it was a fairly even game and neither team deserved to come away losing it."

On his last-gasp injury-time shot...
"It was a snap-shot. I'm not really known for my finishing to be fair! When it comes to that you've got to do what you've got to do. 
"I think most of the lads will agree we're just a little bit disappointed."

On the remainder of the transfer window...
"The gaffer's already said he's trying to get new faces in, I'm sure they're working really hard behind the scenes to get that done. 
"We can't really focus on that, we've got to focus on what we've got on our team."
