Foster gets help for groin problem

Published Add your comment

West Brom goalkeeper Ben Foster is seeing a specialist in Germany to determine the extent of his recurring groin problem.

The former England international was below full fitness for Monday night's home win over Southampton and was unable to kick with his preferred left foot. Foster was ruled out of the final game of last season against Arsenal at the Hawthorns with a groin injury and also missed part of pre-season.

Albion hope the prognosis will determine the extent of the injury and Baggies head coach Steve Clarke is still hopeful Foster may be fit for Saturday's Barclays Premier League game at Wigan. Clarke said: "Ben is in Germany. Most of you noticed on Monday night that he was kicking with his right foot and not his left foot."
