Foster looks ahead to Stoke clash

Keeper previews Albion's visit to the Britannia

Ben Foster says Albion have set their sights on six points from their next two Premier League games, starting at the Britannia Stadium on Saturday (ko 3pm).

The Baggies stopper admits there are no easy games, but believes his side will go into away fixtures at Stoke and Sunderland fancying their chances.

“I don’t think anyone in our side would class any game of football as easy, but we’re heading into two games where we’d want to get four, probably six points.

“We’ve got some seriously tough matches after the international break so it’s important we pick up points in the next couple of weeks.

“I know a lot about Stoke having played there but also because a lot of my family are Stoke fans. I hear about what’s going on over there and they haven’t had the start they would have wanted.

“Hopefully it’s something we can use to our advantage and, like West Ham last week, it could be a good time to play them,” said Foster.

And Albion's number one highlighted the importance of last weekend’s win against the Hammers at The Hawthorns, which saw the Baggies net four in the first hour.

“Every game this season we’ve created chances but haven’t been able to put them away. The Bournemouth game was a prime example.

“The goals we scored against West Ham were good goals and it was a real welcome win before we head to the Britannia.”
