Millwall extended their winless league run to four matches when they suffered a 2-1 defeat away against Hull City last weekend.
Tom Bradshaw‘s strike in first-half stoppage time cancelled out George Honeyman‘s opener, however the hosts regained the lead seven minutes after the break through Ryan Longman and were able to hold on for all three points.
Gary Rowett‘s men remain 10th in the Championship standings, but the gap between them and the playoffs has now increased to six points.
Millwall have struggled defensively in recent weeks, keeping only one clean sheet in their last nine league games. The Lions will, however, be confident of keeping Birmingham’s attack quiet on Saturday as they have kept seven clean sheets in their last nine league matches against the Blues, including shutouts in both encounters last season.
Rowett’s side also have an impressive record on home soil, losing just one of their last eight Championship matches at The Den, as well as scoring in each of their last 12 games in front of the Lions faithful.
Millwall will be without versatile midfielder Ryan Leonard and winger Connor Mahoney as they continue to recover from respective ankle and hamstring injuries.
After using a 4-2-3-1 formation in the defeat to Hull, Rowett may decide to revert back to a 3-4-3 system this weekend, which could see centre-back Jake Cooper return to the starting lineup.
Bradshaw will be hoping to retain his place in the first XI, however attacking trio Benik Afobe, Jed Wallace and Sheyi Ojo are all expected to start.
As for Birmingham, midfield due Ryan Woods and Gary Gardner will serve the second and third of their respective three and four-match suspensions and both will next be available to play on December 18 against Blackburn Rovers.
The Blues will also be without George Friend (leg), Maxime Colin (Achilles) and Adan George (knee) due to injury.
