Watford's win over Wolverhampton Wanderers was made slightly sweeter for goalkeeper Ben Foster, who said he now has bragging rights over the Black Country side's fans.

The Hornets' custodian was reminded of his links to Wolves' midland rivals West Bromwich Albion during the second half of the match at Vicarage Road when he was stood in front of the travelling supporters.

However, the goalkeeper had the last laugh with Watford picking up a 2-1 win and he said it was nice get one over his old foes after a sustained period of online jesting.

"Me and the Wolves fans, we've got a bit of a past," said Foster.

"I don't think I'm their favourite person, but today was sweet because I've just had three or four months of absolute dog's abuse off them on any kind of social media that could possibly be out there, so it's nice I've got the bragging rights for the next six months or so."

Foster's form has been the subject of high praise from his team-mates and the media alike, but he puts it all down to working with the new coaching staff and in particular goalkeeper coach Graham Stack, who he hopes will be installed in the role permanently.

"Graham Stack who's come in and been the goalie coach, he's been absolutely fantastic," he said.

"Me, Gomey [Heurelho Gomes], Dan Bachmann, Pontus [Dahlberg], we've absolutely loved his training. Hopefully he can stay as long as possible and I don't know if he's been given the job full time yet, but he deserves it because he's been absolutely class. When you've got older goalies like me and Gomey it's almost a case of keeping them ticking along and doing stuff that they want to do. He knows all that, he's been absolutely top class, he's a great bloke and he makes training fun and that's what it's about."
