Carlos Corberan’s side have their eyes firmly set on a return to the Premier League 12 months after surviving relegation to League One by just six points.
Huddersfield have taken 14 points from the last 18 available on the road and beat league leaders Fulham in their last away trip.
Preview: Birmingham vs. Huddersfield – prediction, team news, lineups
Lee Bowyer said there was “no way” that Birmingham should have left Reading with nothing after losing 2-1 away at the Royals on Tuesday night.
The Blues have now picked up only one win in their last seven matches and have won just two in 14 since the start of December, although both of those victories came on home turf.
Meanwhile, only three sides have conceded more goals this season than Bowyer’s team, who have shipped 53 in 34 games.
Birmingham centre-back Teden Mengi could be fit enough to return after a hamstring problem, which would allow Lee Bowyer to switch to a back three.
Fellow Manchester United loanee Tahith Chong is also nearing a return but Lee Bowyer described the winger as “rusty” this week, meaning he is unlikely to go straight into the starting lineup.
Kristian Pedersen‘s yellow card against Reading on Tuesday night means that he is one booking away from incurring a two-match suspension.
Jonathan Hogg and Harry Toffolo are likely to return to Huddersfield’s starting lineup after being rested against Cardiff.
Levi Colwill made his return to the matchday squad in midweek after eight weeks out with a knee injury, so he will be pushing for a start.
