When Sheffield United returned to action after just one game in five weeks, they looked completely undercooked, deservedly losing 3-0 and 2-0 respectively at Wolverhampton Wanderers and Derby County.
However, progress has been made over the past three games, a frustrating 2-2 draw at Preston North End being followed by wins over Luton Town and Peterborough United.
Welcome clean sheets were recorded in each of those fixtures, while Billy Sharp continued his fine campaign with his eighth league goal versus the latter.
Although Paul Heckingbottom‘s team are still six points adrift of the playoffs, they have at least two games in hand on all but one of the clubs above them.
Some potentially pivotal fixtures lie ahead, including against West Bromwich Albion and Huddersfield Town, but Heckingbottom will back his players to earn a result against the majority of the clubs in this division.
Bowyer may be prepared to name the same Birmingham starting lineup from last weekend, retaining a frontline of Taylor and Scott Hogan.
Ivan Sunjic is a potential alternative to Ryan Woods in the centre of midfield, but Lukas Jutkiewicz will likely remain on the substitutes’ bench.
Sheffield United will be forced into at least one change after Rhian Brewster sustained a hamstring injury last weekend.
Daniel Jebbison has been recalled from his loan spell at Burton Albion, but Oli McBurnie or David McGoldrick are favourites to come into the team.
Brentford loanee Charlie Goode is expected to be named among the replacements with the current back three having kept consecutive clean sheets, although fellow loanee Morgan Gibbs-White is still at least a week away from returning after a kneeinjury.
