Both players look set to start tonight's game but with Matt Livermore and Mark Phillips both struggling with injury and Zak Whitbread and Ady Williams cup-tied, Livermore is likely to play in the centre of defence again.
The Lions also welcome Chelsea goalkeeper Lenny Pidgeley, who will become the 29th player and sixth goalkeeper to represent The Lions this season when he makes his debut tonight. With Colin Doyle unable to play against his parent club and Andy Marshall out with a knee injury, Pidgeley was signed on an emergency seven day emergency loan deal specifically for this game.
Jermaine Wright is also set to feature after being given permission to play by Leeds United and striker Ben May is set to return to the starting line-up with Bruce Dyer cup tied.
Birmingham City boss Steve Bruce may risk midfielder David Dunn and striker Walter Pandiani may come into the side in place of Jiri Jarosik.
