Press Association Ben Foster could end his West Brom injury nightmare next month. But the England international is due to resume training next week – in a huge boost to his Euro 2016 hopes – and could be available by the end of November. “Ben is hopefully on the grass next week, that’s getting closer for us,” said Pulis, ahead of Saturday’s Barclays Premier League visit of Leicester. “I don’t think people have mentioned it as often as they could have, in respect to missing such an influential player – and an influential player in the dressing room as well. “It’s been a little bit of a setback but the lads have coped very well with it.” Deputy Boaz Myhill has kept six clean sheets in 10 Barclays Premier League games this season to earn praise from Pulis and keep summer signing Anders Lindegaard on the bench. “He is a very sound lad, he knows the score and the game. It’s interesting to see how he has coped with it,” Pulis said. “Anders has been a good back up and that helps. The year before I was at Crystal Palace and we had (Julian) Speroni. We bought (Wayne) Hennessey in and Speroni went up another level. “Bo has done exceptionally well. One person doesn’t keep clean sheets, it’s got to be the whole team. “That’s very important people recognise it. It’s not the centre-backs, it’s everyone together as one unit. It’s a tough season.” The goalkeeper is set to resume training as he continues his recovery from a cruciate knee ligament injury. Foster has been out since March and was expected back this month but suffered a setback which boss Tony Pulis thought would keep him out until Christmas.
TRINIDAD and Tobago driving sensation, Kristian ‘Boodoostig’ Boodoosingh has been confirmed as one of the overseas competitors for the Georgetown Grand Prix ‘Caribbean Showdown’ billed for this weekend.Boodoosingh, the 2015 Caribbean Motor Racing Championships’ Group Four runner-up, will make his second appearance at the Georgetown Grand Prix, after competing for the first time at the event back in April this year.Back then he lined up in the Shifter Pro Cup against the likes of Group Four rival, Kristian Jeffrey, but didn’t get the desired results, finishing outside the top three in two races and failing to finish the third.This time around, the ‘Trini’ will do battle in the 125cc Senior category and he is looking to right the wrongs of that April race meet.“I am ecstatic about this opportunity given to me again by Vishok Persaud to race under the lights at the GT Motorsports facility. This time I will be running in the 125cc class, coming up against the likes of the Jamaican racers. Now having one event under my belt, it should put me in a better position to hopefully get on the podium this coming Saturday,” Boodoosingh said on Sunday.He will be up against Matthew Vieira, Denzel Hopkinson, Mikhail Mohamed and first-timers to GT Motorsport– the Jamaican duo, Senna Summerbell and Joshua Sigany.Action will get underway at 18:00hrs and admission to the venue is $1,000 for adults, $500 for children and $4,000 for the VIP experience.The Georgetown Grand Prix will set the stage for the ultimate motorsport event of the year- the final leg of the Caribbean Motor Racing Championship on November 12 at the South Dakota Circuit.It is being supported by Sun Burst Juices, Rent-A-Tent, Fly Jamaica, Stag Beer, Monster Energy Drink, Exxon Mobil, Hand-in-Hand Insurance, Ready Mixx Concrete, Scotiabank, Cloud 9, Optique Vision Care, Toucan Industries, Ticket Master Travel Agency, E-Networks, King’s Jewellery World, Hero Motor Cycles, Ray’s Motor Spares, Cyril’s Taxi Service, Bounty, Trophy Stall, Prem’s Electrical Store, Impressions, Truck Masters, Windjammer, Super Bet, The Track Bar, Ocean Spray Hotel, Secure Innovation and Concept, Clear Waters, Marics, Rid-O-Pest and Karcher.
