Foster has called on Albion to play their heart out as a thank you to Hodgson for doing such a superb job during his 18 months at the West Midlands club.
"He has been fantastic for us even though I've only been here for a year and he has been here for 18 months.
"Everybody says that since he came here he has just steadied the ship and got everyone settled.
"Everybody knows their jobs from the strikers, to the defenders to the goalkeepers.
"Once everyone knows what's going on at any point in the game, you have a chance of improving."
