Keeper decision is not a problem

Peter Grant has a major goalkeeping decision to make today- but insists that the turnover between the sticks doesn't make it a troublesome position. Paul Gallacher, Lee Camp and Jamie Ashdown have all worn to the jersey this season - and on-loan Celtic keeper David Marshall could be the next should Grant hand him his debut at Burnley today.

Peter Grant has a major goalkeeping decision to make today- but insists that the turnover between the sticks doesn't make it a troublesome position.

Paul Gallacher, Lee Camp and Jamie Ashdown have all worn to the jersey this season - and on-loan Celtic keeper David Marshall could be the next should Grant hand him his debut at Burnley today.

Not since the 1946-47 season have City fielded four different goalkeepers in league games, but Grant denied this year's ins and outs denoted a trouble spot.

“It tends to suggest everywhere else is a worrying area for us as well with the results we have had, not just the goalkeeping position,” he said.

“As a team I have think we have let ourselves down. If somebody gets sent off, I can't do much about that, if somebody is cup tied, I can't do much about that. Gall (Gallacher) was injured - I can't do much about that.

“That's the reason there have been so many goalkeepers. Unfortunately, I think that is the way it has been since we came here. We lost Hucks and Earnie for a bit and now we have lost Earnie again. We lost Doherty, we lost Fleming, we lost Croft and Chadwick, there is nothing you can do about that.
