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.

“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.

“It’s tough on Bart but tough on everyone else as well. Everyone has dips in form and confidence but Bart’s brilliant.

“He’s obviously had some time out of the team this year but he’s come back and has been brilliant.

“He needs help as well, it’s not just him. He needs his defenders, the midfielders and even us up front.

“We attack as a team and defend as a team.”
