This is only the second game this season that the Hampshire-based official has refereed.
In his only match so far, he dished out two red cards and eight yellows, as Bradford won 3-1 away at Peterborough on 9 September.
The last Blues game he refereed was the Club's Championship home fixture against Wolves in August 2016.
Blues were beaten 3-1 in that match and Mr Stroud produced three yellow cards and one red. These included a caution for Blues' David Davis and a straight red for Jack Storer.
Mr Stroud will be assisted by James Mainwaring and Nick Greenhalgh.
