West Bromwich Albion boss Steve Clarke praised Ben Foster for his performance in defeat at Fulham.

It was goalkeeper Foster who pulled off a string of superb saves to keep the scoreline respectable.

The former England goalkeeper completed a permanent move to the Hawthorns over the summer and Clarke was pleased with the 29-year-old's performance.

He said: "He made some good saves but you know when you are down to 10 men that the opposition will have chances against you.

"We spent a lot of time in the summer chasing Ben Foster because we know he is capable of making those types of saves.

"We know he is a top goalkeeper and we paid good money for him. Performances like that are what we expect from Ben Foster."
