Ben Foster is set for a 12 week spell on the sidelines after scans revealed he has suffered a stress fracture on a bone in his right foot.

The goalkeeper will undergo surgery in the next few days and Steve Clarke told wba.co.uk.

‘There’s no hiding from the fact this is disappointing news as Ben is a key player for us. He was excellent on Saturday before his injury forced him off. In the meantime, I’ve got two very good goalkeepers to choose from. Boaz did well when he deputised for Ben last season and Luke showed on Saturday he is a more than capable goalkeeper.’
