Gaffers View: WHU h (2-2)
City manager Alex McLeish is of the opinion that Ben Foster could be in line for an England call up if he carries on with the form that he is in.

McLeish praised Foster after he pulled off a stunning save from Carlton Cole to make sure Blues got a share of the spoils at St Andrews on Saturday.

He said: 'It was a fantastic save from Cole and Ben has been totally on top of his game from the day he arrived.

'He is in the frame for England, and him and Joe Hart are playing out of their skin at the moment.'

McLeish admitted: 'In the first half there was no penetration from us, we were not a threat but when we went more direct in the second half we caused more problems.

'West Ham are not a bad side. They have good individuals and Avram is trying to get them playing as a team.

'For an hour they played well but, when we got at them, we were a different side.'
