The 25-year-old has bagged two goals in Republic of Ireland's first World Cup qualifiers over the last week.
However, at St Andrews he looks to be fourth choice with Emile Heskey, Mikael Forssell and new signing Dwight Yorke all likely to be ahead of him in the pecking order.
"I'm as confident now as I've ever been in my career and hopefully when I get back to Birmingham I can kick on," said Morrison.
"It will be hard to get into the team, but after these two games under my belt and the two goals I've scored, I'm hoping I will have given Steve Bruce food for thought.
"Whether I've done enough to merit a place in the starting line-up is up to the manager because I've not really done it for Birmingham yet.
"All I can keep doing is playing well for my country when selected and give Steve a problem.
"But I know between now and the game with France next month [October 9] I need to get some matches under my belt because that is going to be a big game.
"I need to be match sharp, and then we've the Faroe Islands after that. I can ask to go on loan and do something, but I doubt if he will let me because he has told me before he won't let me go on loan.
"It makes it difficult for me, so that means I just have to get in the team."
