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

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.
