The Pole, who was benched by former Blues boss Paul Hurst earlier in the campaign, has not been at his best during 2018/19 and scored an own goal in last night’s 3-2 loss to Bristol City as he clawed the ball into his own net.

But, speaking after the game, striker Freddie Sears insisted the Pole will rediscover his form and has the backing of his team-mates.

“Bart’s been brilliant and he’s been player-of-the-season here in the last three years, so I don’t think anyone can be too harsh on him,” Sears said.

“But those are the moments where we need to keep the ball out of the net and if we do that at 1-0 and 2-1 then we win the game.
