Foster: We'll take confidence into Manchester United game

BEN Foster believes Albion need to build on the “bit of momentum” they gained from a battling goalless draw against Liverpool on Wednesday.

Manchester United visit the Hawthorns this weekend for a match that could be the goalkeeper's 200th in a Baggies shirt, and he insists his team will go into the game with a positive frame of mind after their midweek showing. 

“It was a tough match and Anfield is a really tough place to go but I thought the whole team performed really well,” said Foster.

“It wasn’t only a defensive display because when we actually got the ball I thought we tried to go for it and nick something.

“To come away with a clean sheet is no mean feat. There’s going to be a lot of teams that cost a lot more money and have bigger wages than us that come away from Liverpool having conceding quite a few goals.

“So we were really pleased - it’s a good way to bounce back from a disappointing result against Swansea.

“I think we’ll all pat ourselves on the back but we’ve got another tough match on Sunday, and we can at least take a lot of confidence into that.

“I think everyone to a man played really, really well so it’s a little bit of momentum to take into the Manchester United game."
