Brian Tinnion's search for a back-up goalkeeper continued today as he opened talks with an Australian international.

The City boss is desperate to secure the services of a stopper who can challenge current number one Steve Phillips for his jersey in 2005/06.

Talks are continuing with the agent of trialist Colin Stewart, formally of Ross County and Kilmarnock, but Brian is also looking at other options.

None more so than Australian international Michael Turnball, who is ready to leave Belgian club Standard Liege.

Other sides in Australia are also said to be tracking Turnball, but City's manager hopes the keeper's fellow countryman Luke Wilkshire's link with the club will be the deciding factor.

"We're speaking to him at the moment and it's another option," Brian told bcfc.co.uk. "We've been looking for a long time now and there aren't too many good keepers about.

"But at least we've got the rest of the squad sorted out. That's the main thing and it may even need a loan deal to secure the services of a keeper."
