Watford

Foster has saved us points – Cleverley

4th February 2019, 15:46 by Daniel McCarthy

Watford midfielder Tom Cleverley says goalkeeper Ben Foster has saved the Hornets several points this season on his return to the club.

Foster rejoined the club where he spent two successful years on loan between 2005 and 2007 and helped Hornets win promotion to the Premier League.

He has been one of the most consistent goalkeepers this season as Javi Gracia's men are eighth in the table with Foster having kept six clean sheets this season.

The latest of which came at the weekend when the 35-year-old made a string of impressive stops to end the game 0-0.

And, Cleverley says his presence has been a massive part of their success so far this campaign.

"I thought the one with his foot was unbelievably instinctive. He's a top, top keeper," said the midfielder. "He's a great character, he's been an unbelievable signing for us and won us a lot of points.

"He's one of the smiliest guys I know! You see his reaction after he's saved it - he's just smiling - he's a great guy.

"He's great to have and he's definitely won us a point."
