Birmingham City boss Pep Clotet has admitted he understands why supporters are unhappy with Lee Camp’s performances but he remained coy on whether the keeper would start this weekend.
The former Nottingham Forest stopper has had a pretty tough season, with his latest mistake coming prior to the international break when he failed to deal with a pretty routine cross which allowed Aleksandar Mitrovic to score the only goal as Fulham beat Blues.
Therefore, many fans want to see the Spaniard make a change for the game at Huddersfield this weekend. And, Clotet addressed that when speaking to Birmingham Live today.
“As a ‘keeper I think Lee Camp had a solid start to the season and I obviously understand the fans are worried because if the goalkeeper makes a mistake it normally ends up in a goal. What I can say to the fans is everyone here is very focused on correcting mistakes, on improving on helping us to get better and building.
“We are not naive that the only thing is to build, to build, the importance is to finish as well as possible as well as build the club – that’s my motivation. Tomorrow I will decide.”

Blues are currently six points outside the play-offs ahead of the hectic period coming up.
It’s going to be very interesting to see what Clotet does this weekend and Camp can have no complaints if he does lose his place.
He has made too many errors this season and you can understand why the fans have become frustrated with him.
So, it may be the right call to take him out of the spotlight but either way, Blues need their keeper to have a big game against a Huddersfield side that are strong at home under Danny Cowley.
