The Baggies' solid run of form has been halted by consecutive losses to clubs above them in the Premier League table but, after some impressive home wins in recent weeks, Tony Pulis's men still sit in ninth position.

And Foster insists the atmosphere in the Albion dressing room is still good as they prepare to face Southampton on New Year's Eve.

"Without a doubt, the lads are cracking," said the England goalkeeper. "They're absolutely buzzing still, to be honest with you.

"Obviously we've taken a bit of a hit losing with three or four minutes to go but it's a tough game.

"You're under no illusions when you come to the Emirates. If you get anything from the game it's going to be hard-earned.

"But it's not the end of the world. We've got a big game coming up at the end of the week against Southampton and then Hull after that so we've got to focus on them now."
