The former Scotland boss thinks the squad he inherited is too small for him to rest key players ahead of Saturday's FA Cup tie with Huddersfield.
"We need to add players to the squad," McLeish told BBC WM.
"These boys can't go through the season playing at the work rate they've been given without any rotation at all, they're going to need some help."
