McLeish is likely to give several youngsters or fringe players the opportunity to make an impression against the League Two side.

One player who definitely will not figure is veteran striker Kevin Phillips, who could be out for another month with a thigh problem picked up before the start of the campaign.

Stuart Parnaby is also out with a hamstring injury.

Blues (from): Foster, Carr, Parnaby, Murphy, Ridgewell, Dann, Johnson, Larsson, Gardner, Bowyer, Ferguson, Michel, Mutch, Fahey, McFadden, Valles, Jerome, O'Connor, Zigic, Taylor, Doyle, Derbyshire.
