West Brom lose keeper Foster for 12 weeks

West Bromwich Albion goalkeeper Ben Foster is facing 12 weeks on the sidelines.

Foster will be sidelined for up to 12 weeks after a scan showed he has suffered a stress fracture of a bone in his right foot.

Wales international Boaz Myhill, who returned to training this week after a wrist injury, is likely to step in for Foster.

The Baggies can also call on Luke Daniels who made his first-team debut when he replaced Foster at Everton.

Manager Steve Clarke said: "I've got two other very good goalkeepers to choose from.

"Boaz did well when he deputised for Ben last season and Luke showed on Saturday he is a more than capable goalkeeper."
