Birmingham will check on captain David Davis, who has been sidelined by a knee problem sustained in the derby against Aston Villa.

Midfielder Cheikh Ndoye is available again after a one-game ban following his late red card at Villa Park.

Dutchman Maikel Kieftenbeld, though, misses out as the midfielder starts a two-match ban following a 10th caution collected in Saturday’s 1-0 home defeat to Millwall.

Left-back Jonathan Grounds continues to recover from a knee problem, while Spaniard Jota will be hoping to face his former club.
