Ben Foster today urged Albion fans not to forget his deputy in the chorus of acclaim for new-look Albion.
Foster is halfway through his recovery from a broken foot, which means stand-in keeper Boaz Myhill will continue in goal until Christmas.
But the England man is full of admiration for the manner in which his partner has filled the breach.
“Boaz has been really good – I’ve said it before but I knew he’d be fine,” said Foster. “I get to see him day in, day out, in training so it’s no surprise to me.
“We’ve needed him as well. There have been times in the last couple of games where he’s made a save when had the opposition scored it would have been a completely different game.
“I’ve watched every game while I’ve been injured and he just slots in. It doesn’t matter that I’m not there.”
Although Foster has been restricted to the role of spectator he has shared the rising excitement around The Hawthorns following the landmark defeat of Manchester United at Old Trafford.
“There aren’t many teams that go there and put them on the back foot,” said the former United man. “But we deserved our win and deserve massive credit.”
