Birmingham were thrashed 6-2 by free-scoring Fulham on Tuesday night, conceding four times in the opening 43 minutes.
The Blues are now winless in seven matches in all competitions and have picked up just one victory in their last 11, which was a scrappy 1-0 triumph over Blackpool at the end of November.
Lee Bowyer‘s side are still relatively safe and sit nine points above the relegation zone, but their next three games are against the current bottom three – Barnsley, Peterborough United and Derby County – so they could get dragged into the fight if results do not go their way.
Lee Bowyer is hopeful that Jordan Graham could feature for Birmingham as the winger has returned to training after missing the last three games.
New loan signing Taylor Richards is still not fit to play, while Troy Deeney and Ivan Sanchez are also absent through injury.
Marc Roberts and Lukasz Jutkiewicz were taken off against Fulham as a precaution after recently returning from hamstring issues, but should be available.
Poya Asbaghi says that Barnsley have exactly 14 first team players available for this game, meaning they should finally be able to play after Covid-19 and injuries meant they had to call off recent games due to a depleted squad.
The Tykes boss is hopeful that Michal Helik will be at least fit enough for the matchday squad after returning from a thigh problem.
Captain and top scorer Cauley Woodrow is set for around two months on the sidelines after undergoing knee surgery last week.
