Ben Foster is confident he won't be a jinx for West Bromwich Albion.

Foster has been relegated with Watford and Birmingham City during his career.

He said: "We'll be absolutely fine. I had the misfortune of getting relegated with Birmingham last season and with Watford a few years back as well.

"I can see what you need in your team to avoid the drop. We have plenty of talent in this team to avoid the drop.

"I think realistically we have to be looking towards 10th and 11th place. That's our true position."
