Boss Paul Lambert has said he is still undecided on who will start in goal come next Saturdays opener at Burton.

Lambert admits he has a tough decision to make: “Yes, the two of them have been fine, there’s no issue with that at all, it’s just who I throw in there.”

Bart was expected to move on this summer but after his move to Millwall broke down, Lambert now expects Bialkowski to fight with Holy for the shirt.

“Millwall enquired about him, never happened for one reason or another, so Bart has to fight with Holy.”

The Blues manager has praised how Bialkowski has got on with the job since the collapsed move.

“You have to, the club pays your wages,” he continued. “This is your club, this is your job, the club pays your wages.

“If things don’t happen for you you get on with it. There’s no point in thinking about what could have been. If it doesn’t happen, it doesn’t happen. If it happens, it happens, the club moves on.

“The club’s bigger than any player, any individual. The supporters are the major factor at a football club, the club will always be here long after everybody else has gone.”

Tomorrow’s game with Cambridge is the final opportunity for the pair to impress before the big kick-off at Burton on August 3.
