Russell Hoult's return to fitness has increased the size of Bryan Robson's goalkeeping headache.
The West Bromwich Albion manager says that he now has the best trio of keepers in the Premiership.
But the Albion boss is also acutely aware that the need to keep them happy might force him to have to send one out on loan.
The worry for Robson, having made it clear that summer signing Chris Kirkland is Albion's new No 1 after starting the season with him, is that it might give either the fitagain Hoult or Tomasz Kuszczak itchy feet.
But, for now, Robson is happy just to have all three of them to choose from.
"Russell Hoult is a very, very good goalkeeper," Robson said. "He is getting back to full fitness so, as far as I'm concerned, Albion have the best group of goalkeepers in the Premiership.
"People will say Chelsea have got Carlo Cudicini and Petr Cech. But, as a trio, I don't think anyone has got any better than us.
"And what I'm going to have to do is let at least one of them go out on loan to get them match practice."
Hoult made some sharp saves for Albion on Tuesday night as he got a second successive 90 minutes behind him playing for Albion reserves in a 1-0 defeat to Aston Villa, a match in which new signing Nathan Ellington put in his first 45 minutes in Albion colours.
Robson recognises that he will soon be fully fit.
"Russell had a few injury problems at the end of last season," Robson said. "And through the summer he didn't get over it. But his groin situation is getting better as the treatment goes on. And, within another two weeks, he'll be fit."
Having been without Hoult for the big kick-off, his big decision was whether to choose between Kirkland and Kuszczak - and Robson admits to having been torn.
"Tomasz did absolutely nothing wrong in preseason," Robson said. "And it was a close decision for me as to who would play.
"I chose Chris because he's played a lot more times in the Premiership and I went with that experience. Tomasz has pushed Chris all the way and he was unlucky to miss out.
"But Chris showed what he's all about with that topclass save he made in the first half on Saturday.
"I know that's what he's paid to do but that was great for his confidence, his overall performance was very good and we're just looking to get him back to the form he had before and do it week in, week out.
"And he's being kept on his toes to do just that by the competition for places."
