The Blues could be without two of their attacking threats at the weekend after both Che Adams and Jota picked up hamstring injuries against Leeds United on Tuesday night and are expected to be sidelined on Saturday.
Jota was taken off while Adams, who had come off the bench to replace Sam Gallagher on 70 minutes, hobbled off the pitch at the end of the game.
Carl Jenkinson, who dislocated his shoulder on his debut against Reading, is still out, however, summer signing Isaac Vassell could be in contention after recovering from a hamstring injury of his own.
Speaking after the defeat to new table-toppers Leeds United at Elland Road on Tuesday night City boss Harry Redknapp felt his side were beginning to click.
“There are some quality players here,” he told bcfc.com. “It shone out at Leeds and going forward we are capable of putting a good run together and when we do that we will be dangerous.
“There are 39 games left. This league, you go and win two or three and you shoot right up it, it’s crazy. And we are capable of giving anyone a game, for sure.
“There were positive signs and good performances from the new lads and also from some of the lads who were already here.
“Okay, it is a new team and it is going to take a bit of time. People are going to have to be patient. I've had a week to work with them, really.
“But it's gone from a team that I took over, a team that survived on the last day of last season - they had a disastrous 25 games, two wins - it's now a team there for the future for Birmingham City.
“You have got players who are going to go on and be good players for this Club. People will enjoy watching them play. There’s some smashing players here, there’s a good nucleus.”
