The England international goalkeeper has overcome a broken foot but accepts that it will be difficult to shift Wales No.1 Boaz Myhill from his place in the first team

Fully fit goalkeeper Ben Foster is pragmatic about the chances of an instant recall to the West Brom side after overcoming a broken foot.

The 30-year-old has handed caretaker head coach Keith Downing a timely boost in the wake of Steve Clarke's removal as manager by declaring himself ready to resume first-team duties if needed against Hull City on Saturday.

Foster has been out of action since the Baggies' goalless draw at Everton on August 24, allowing Boaz Myhill the chance to stake his claim to be a regular during his 14 Premier League appearances in the interim, and the former Manchester United keeper knows that he faces stiff competition to win back his place.

"It has been a long slow recovery but I'm really, really happy to be back," Foster told the club's official website. "That's me fully fit now.

"We'll have to wait and see what happens on Saturday. Boaz and Luke [Daniels] have both done very well.

"Bo has been great. I know exactly what Bo can produce and his performances haven't surprised me. He's an international goalkeeper and he's been absolutely brilliant."
