Foster has been sidelined by hernia problems since early November, but is back in training after two operations and could reclaim his first-team place from Boaz Myhill, who has deputised for the last seven games, this weekend.

“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,” Foster said. “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.

“I was never coming off, because it was only kicking with my left foot that I couldn’t do.

“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.”

  • Pity his return may not be made uncomfortable by Holty. Still, we always have Bassong & Turner at set pieces - and that master scorer of headed goals, the Mighty Wes! OTBC.
