Darius sidelined for Lions
Darius Henderson is set to miss out again when Millwall host Birmingham.
The Lions' nine-goal top scorer recently returned from a spell out with a hamstring problem, only to suffer a torn hip muscle which kept him out of Saturday's FA Cup draw against Dagenham.
However, fellow forward Dany N'Guessan could be back in the squad after recovering from an ankle strain.
Skipper Paul Robinson is expected to shake off a knock he sustained against the Daggers but fellow defender Jordan Stewart is still out with a hamstring tear.
Therry Racon has seen specialists in London and France in a bid to recover from a long-term ankle injury but is not expected back this month and Tamika Mkandawire is still recovering from a knee op.
Birmingham will hope Boaz Myhill recovers from illness in time for the trip.
The goalkeeper was replaced at half-time in Wednesday's 2-1 victory over Ipswich due to sickness, with Colin Doyle prepared to step in between the sticks once again if necessary.
Otherwise, manager Chris Hughton is expected to have pretty much the same squad at his disposal.
Centre-back Pablo Ibanez (knee) will again be assessed although the Spaniard is unlikely to start in any case, while captain Stephen Carr remains 10 days or more away from a return.
Midfielder Guirane N'Daw in on African Nations Cup duty with Senegal and misses out again, while Hughton's attempts to bring West Brom striker Chris Wood back to the club on loan have ended after he penned a deal with Bristol City for the rest of the season.
Blues hit Lions for six
Marlon King bagged a brace as Birmingham outlined their promotion credentials by hammering nine-man Millwall 6-0.
Blues were on the back foot for the majority of the first half but they took their chance after the sorry hosts completely lost their discipline.
Curtis Davies gave Chris Hughton's side an 18th-minute lead against the run of play before the Lions' chances were hampered when Shane Lowry was sent off for an off-the-ball incident with Nikola Zigic.
Zigic was at the centre of the action again as he was felled by Alan Dunne's tackle from behind, with the defender also given a straight red card.
From there on, Birmingham ran riot as strikes from King and then Chris Burke ensured the points would go to the midlands outfit.
Further efforts from Adam Rooney, another from King and Nathan Redmond ensured Birmingham extended their unbeaten run to six matches in some style.
Millwall manager Kenny Jackett made five changes to the side that drew at Dagenham & Redbridge in the FA Cup and it was one of those replacements who nearly put the hosts in front.
Hamer Bouazza picked out Dany N'Guessan at the near post but the striker could only head wide.
On-loan Tottenham striker Harry Kane then had his effort from Bouazza's corner cleared off the line by a perfectly positioned Jean Beausejour as the Lions continued to belie their lowly league position.
Despite being on the back foot for much of the early stages, Davies gave Blues an 18th-minute lead against the run of play.
The former Aston Villa defender burst in unmarked at the back post to head home Jordon Mutch's free-kick.
Millwall's defence had failed to pick up Davies' run but things went from bad to worse four minutes later as Lowry received a straight red card for an off-the-ball incident with Zigic.
Referee Jon Moss initially missed the incident but after consulting with his linesman, gave defender Lowry his marching orders.
Despite being reduced to 10 men, Millwall continued to dominate the contest until the interval and only a spectacular save from Blues goalkeeper Boaz Myhill denied Kane from finding the top corner with a 25-yard strike.
The visitors started to gain the upper hand after the interval and their chances of coming away with all three points were enhanced even further when Millwall were reduced to nine men in the 57th minute when Dunne saw red after a tackle on Zigic from behind.
And King took full advantage to double Birmingham's advantage two minutes later.
The striker collected the ball from Keith Fahey before turning and shooting past Millwall shotstopper David Forde.
Unsurprisingly, Birmingham controlled the tempo of the clash thereafter and a one-two between Burke and King ended with the former cutting into the box and firing into the top corner.
Substitute Rooney made it four with a thumping effort from the edge of the area after being teed up by Burke in the 81st minute.
The goalscorer then turned provider as his clever ball found King, who then rounded Forde before finishing for his second of the afternoon two minutes later, while Redmond hammered home a sixth from 12 yards in stoppage time.
