West Brom No2 Downing hails Foster impact

West Bromwich Albion No2 Keith Downing has hailed the impact of on-loan Birmingham City goalkeeper Ben Foster.

Downing believes Albion are reaping the rewards of a player who is thoroughly enjoying his football at The Hawthorns.

"In the last month or two, Ben has been in top form for us and Saturday was a fantastic performance," he told the WBA website.

"Ben kept us in the game with some fantastic saves.

"There has never been a problem with Ben at all, but as Dean Kiely will tell you, he has grown into his position from December onwards and looks a top keeper.

"He has grown into his position and grown into the club. Ben thoroughly enjoys it here and likes working with Dean.

"He's got an appetite for the game and puts a good shift in every day."
