The Manchester City loanee has kept three clean sheets in the Blues’ last three League One fixtures but has faced competition from Alex Bass for the position in between the sticks.
Bazunu said: “The competition element is very important because if you don’t have it you can find yourself slacking. It’s a lot harder to push yourself when you don’t have someone pushing you.
“To have Bassy there training as hard as he does and playing as well as he did in pre-season, it really helped me to put my head down and focus.”
