Blackpool's David Carney will miss out after linking up with Australia ahead of the Asia Cup.
Elliot Grandin is unlikely to be risked as he missed the defeat by Manchester City because of a hamstring strain.
Manager Ian Holloway could be tempted to freshen up his side in an attempt to return to winning ways.
Birmingham boss Alex McLeish is considering making changes as he is mindful of City's forthcoming demanding programme, including a two-legged Carling Cup semi-final with West Ham, before the end of January.
He said: "We've got to consider maybe making some changes with this heavy schedule that we have and the heavy schedule we have after this game also to try and keep everyone fresh."
Midfielder Lee Bowyer is included in the squad although Blues are waiting to see if he will face a Football Association charge for his alleged stamp on Arsenal defender Bacary Sagna.
Playmaker Alexander Hleb is under consideration for a start from McLeish after making a substitute's appearances against Manchester United and Arsenal in his comeback from a hamstring injury.
