Leeds have had two weeks to regroup and refocus, and it will have given boss, Brian McDermott the chance to show what he can get from the squad when given a bit of time.
Rudolph Austin and Ross McCormack have both been off on International duty this week, but the rest of the squad, largely injury free have been working hard and have been quick to give their gaffer a vote of confidence.
The fans, whilst split on the role of owners GFH-C, are still backing McDermott as the right man for the job. The lack of funds and subsequently lack of new faces arriving - with the exception of a possible contract for former Hearts defender, Marius Zaliuk who is currently without a club - McDermott is being afforded the patience of fans to rebuild the club.
Birmingham, whilst improving of late, are struggling in the Championship and with Leeds United claiming the home advantage, a good performance, together with a positive result, will kick-start a season that has stuttered to a halt.
Lucas Radebe will be guest of honour at the game, and expect the fans to be chanting his name for long periods of proceeding, but it is quality on the pitch, not watching from the stands that the Whites need.
Losing tomorrow will just add pressure to the players, the manager and frustrate the fans, as with little money available, it is the current squad of players that are going to have to take Leeds through to May and the Gaffer simply has to get more out of what he has.
