Birmingham have included promising midfielder Jordon Mutch in their squad for the trip to face the Lions.

Mutch impressed during a loan spell at Watford during the first half of the season and Blues want him to sign a new contract.

Midfielder Lee Bowyer will serve the second game of a three-match ban.

Millwall will be without Josh McQuoid and Alan Dunne.

Dunne serves the final game of a three-match ban following his recent red card against Leicester.

Skipper Paul Robinson is set to return to the back four having proved his fitness with a substitute appearance against Derby on Monday following a hamstring injury.

Fellow centre-half Danny Shittu has also been out with a hamstring problem and will be checked over.

Forward Shaun Batt remains a long-term absentee with a cruciate injury.

Birmingham (from): Foster, Carr, Johnson, Dann, Ridgewell, Larsson, Gardner, Ferguson, Fahey, Hleb, Jerome, Derbyshire, Taylor, Parnaby, Murphy, Phillips, Zigic, Michel, Beausejour, Jiranek.
