West Brom’s keeper, Ben Foster, has suffered a setback in relation to the groin injury he picked up which resulted in him having to undergo minor surgery.
The keeper will now miss West Brom’s trip to Sunderland in the Barclay’s Premier League after another part of his groin has reacted badly and manager Steve Clarke is uncertain about when he expects his keeper to return to action.
Speaking to the press, Clarke said
“Ben won’t be fit this week. We are thinking he’s got a similar problem on the other side of the groin now.
“We will get that checked out but he definitely won’t be fit for Saturday.”
“I don’t know [when he will return]. I’ll leave that to my medical staff and we will assess it again after the weekend.”
West Brom are also set to be without Youssouf Mulumbu who has a hamstring injury with Clarke adding
“He won’t be fit this weekend but we are very hopeful he will be fit for midweek against Swansea.”
