We welcomed Ben Foster back to Staffordshire on Saturday, with the keeper playing 90 minutes for West Brom in the 1-1 draw at the bet365 Stadium.
Elsewhere in the Premier League, Robert Huth had a miserable afternoon- the centre back was booked during Leicester’s 4-1 loss at Old Trafford.

Ryan Shotton played in the heart of Birmingham’s defence at Loftus Road. Fellow academy product Karl Henry was an unused substitute for QPR in the 1-1 draw.

On Friday, Paul Gallagher’s Preston picked up an important 1-0 victory over Lancashire rivals Wigan.
Down in League One, current Stoke man George Waring was an unused substitute for Shrewsbury, with Moha not in their matchday squad.
