Veteran midfielder Lee Carsley reported to training with a stiff back on Sunday but it is not expected to keep him out of contention against Sam Allardyce’s team.
McLeish is again likely to field an unchanged line-up as City look to extend an unbeaten run of seven matches from which they have collected 17 points.
David Murphy, Garry O’Connor, Martin Taylor and Teemu Tainio remain long-term injury absentees.
The match kicks off at 8pm.
Birmingham (from): Hart, Carr, Johnson, Dann, Ridgewell, Larsson, Ferguson, Bowyer, McFadden, Jerome, Benitez, Maik Taylor, Phillips, Fahey, McSheffrey, O’Shea, Carsley, Vignal.
