Pulis hoping West Brom will avoid goalkeeping crisis

West Brom boss Tony Pulis is hoping to avoid a goalkeeping crisis against Southampton on Saturday.

Pulis faces a wait to see if either Ben Foster or Boaz Myhill will be fit to play at St Mary’s, with untested 21-year-old Alex Palmer in line for his first-team debut should both be sidelined.

Foster missed the draw at Leicester with a knee injury so Myhill made his first Premier League start since April 2016 but finished the game hobbling around with a hamstring problem.

Both players trained on Thursday and it is hoped they will do so again on Friday before the squad travel to the south coast.

“We’ve had scans back and Ben trained yesterday while Boaz trained and did a little bit yesterday as well,” said Pulis.

“They’ll do a little bit more today and we hope one of them will be fit to start, but we don’t know which one.

“It’s going to be a big 48 hours for us as a team and as a club in respect of the two senior goalkeepers, although it’s brighter than it was after the game on Monday.”
