Former Manchester United goalkeeper Ben Foster has been unable to get regular game time at his current club West Brom due to the form of Boaz Myhill.

The former Hull City goalkeeper has been able to keep the England international out of the first-team reckoning. Foster lost his place after suffering a stress fracture in one of his bones. He has been out for the last few months, but he only recently returned to training. His return has started speculation that Myhill may be dropped to the bench, but the current number one has other ideas.

After a tough start to the season, West Brom have been experiencing good form of late. This is likely to help them finish in the top half of the table, according to Soccer Blog. Boaz Myhill has been instrumental in this good form, as he has been able to make several saves against top teams like Chelsea and Manchester United. West Brom will be taking on archrivals Aston Villa in the Midlands derby on Monday.

"Ben has proved himself to be a top keeper all the time he's been here and I have no illusions - I'll be up against it. Your best is always good enough as a player, and if the manager chooses Ben that's his decision. I just want to do as well as I can while he's not fit. You'd have to ask the manager that, I don't pick the team," said the goalkeeper ahead of the match.
Ahead of the match, he said that the return of Foster certainly provides immense threat to his runout in the first-team, but he is hoping to retain his place by ensuring that he deserves it more than the former United man. West Brom come into the match on the back of a 2-2 draw with Chelsea before the international break.
