The West Brom goalkeeper Ben Foster could be making a return to the first-team for the match against Norwich during the weekend. The goalkeeper said on the official site of the club that he is currently making good progress from a hernia problem that he suffered a few weeks ago.

The return of the former Manchester United goalkeeper could mean that the manager Steve Clarke will have a selection headache due to the presence of the former Hull City goalkeeper Boaz Myhill. Myhill has been in goal for West Brom for the last seven matches and he has a strong point for being retained in the first-team ahead of Ben Foster.

Foster's last game for West Brom was back in November when the club managed a 2-0 victory over struggling Southampton. He has said that he could not hit the ball with his left foot because his hernia problem had caused him to experience severe pain when doing so with his left foot. Hence, he had to take the goal kicks with his right foot. He has also revealed that he has experience in several groin problems over the last couple of weeks. Hence, he decided to take the operation that would solve both problems.

"I played in the Southampton game (on November 5), when we won 2-0, and I couldn't kick with my left foot because every time I kicked the ball there was a nerve getting pressed underneath my hernia, which was quite painful. I had to kick with my right foot because I had no pain on my right side. I got away with it because I could do all of the goalkeeping stuff fine, but as soon as I tried to kick a ball it was jumping out of your skin time!" said Foster to the official site of the club.
