Keeper begins full training

Ben Foster hopes to be fully fit to face Norwich City at The Hawthorns this weekend.

The former England international has been sidelined for the last seven games after undergoing the knife to correct a double-hernia.

But the stopper has now returned to full training and is aiming for a recall against the Canaries.

“I’ve had groin issues recently but they think all of that was connected to the hernia, so hopefully this will solve all of that,” said Foster. “It was really a double-hernia operation.  “I had one side operated on and that was all fine.  “I got back into training and pretty much straight away it was apparent the other side needed doing.  “So it’s been a whole lot longer than I thought it was going to be but hopefully it’s all sorted now and we can crack on.  “I started training properly yesterday so we will see how training goes this week and take it from there.  “I trained fine yesterday. I felt absolutely fine.  “The team has been doing well, Boaz has been doing great, so we will just see how it goes.”
