Steve Bruce will today assess the fitness of Gabriel Agbonlahor and Neil Taylor ahead of the Second City derby.
We face Blues on Sunday, with a 12noon kick-off.
Agbonlahor has been out for three months with a torn hamstring while Taylor has been absent for the past two games with a groin issue.
Agbonlahor and Taylor are both set to be out of the fields of Bodymoor Heath this morning.
Bruce will check their conditioning and make a decision in the next 48 hours.
He said: “The training session today is key. I will have a look at them.
“In a big game, you need players to be 100% fit. That’s all I’m thinking about.”
