Alex McLeish takes charge of Nottingham Forest at his former club Birmingham amid rumours of a bust-up with club owners.
McLeish, in charge at St Andrew's between November 2007 and June 2011, saw his deadline-day move for Peterborough's George Boyd fall through over an eye test.
The Scot is waiting to see whether he will be able to include Adlene Guedioura as part of the Reds' travelling party.
The midfielder is due back in Nottingham following Algeria's elimination from the African Cup of Nations in South Africa.
McLeish also hopes to have Kuwaiti goalkeeper Khaled Al-Rashidi on the bench as cover for Karl Darlow after the 25-year-old this week moved to the City Ground on a free transfer from Al Arabi.
On-loan defender Daniel Ayala (hamstring) and striker Marcus Tudgay (collarbone) remain unavailable.
