Birmingham boss Alex McLeish sang the praises of goalkeeper Ben Foster after the 1-0 win over Chelsea. Foster put his mistake against France when on England duty behind him with a string of superb saves as Lee Bowyer's goal secured a surprise victory over the leaders. McLeish said: "I've always said a good keeper is paramount. He can win you championships, earn you points, save you points, or keep your team in the division. "Ben has been superb for us. I thought the criticism of him with England was a bit harsh. "He made some great saves here and in other games and has been on top form since he came here."
