Foster The Frustrated

Ben Foster is concentrating with all his might on coming back from injury, putting aside previous expectations about this season.

The England keeper, tipped as a serious contender for the No. 1 shirt, has suffered a devastating injury last May that is set to keep him out until January. The impressive Foster can still fulfil his potential but at the moment he only concentrates on getting back to the pitch.

'I've been injured since May and when you can't do what you're paid to do it's massively frustrating,' he told the club's official website.

'I had a lot of expectations surrounding this season and what it might hold for me but I have to put those aside for now.

'When you're told you're going to be out for eight months and no sooner you just have to knuckle down and get on with it.

'Earlier this month, I started doing a few things - just having someone hit volleys into my hands. But I'll start doing some proper sessions soon with the goalkeeper coach and that will push the knee a bit further.

'The aim at the moment is to be doing full training and getting involved with the lads sometime after Christmas - probably early February.'

I bet he's gutted about his injury seeing as Scott Carson now looks like snatching the England jersey!

You will probably send him back out on loan for the rest of the season to get his fitness back.
