Football - West Brom keeper Foster out for up to three months

West Bromwich Albion goalkeeper Ben Foster could be sidelined for up to three months with a stress facture in his foot, manager Steve Clarke said on Tuesday.


The England international limped off after 77 minutes of his side's 0-0 draw with Everton on Saturday and will have surgery on his right foot later in the week.

"There's no hiding the fact this is disappointing news as Ben is a key player for us," Clarke told the Premier League club's website (

"He was excellent on Saturday before his injury forced him off."

West Brom's reserve keepers are Wales international Boaz Myhill and Luke Daniels, who made his first-team debut when coming on for Foster.
