Liam Rosenior will give his Derby County squad time off over the international break and says his players need the rest ahead of a hectic schedule.
The Rams are not back in action until the beginning of October when they face Cambridge United after the weekend's game against Cheltenham was postponed as a result of Conor Hourihane, Jason Knight and Eiran Cashin's call-ups to the Republic of Ireland set up.
Once the League One campaign resumes on October 1, Derby will play eight games in a month after the EFL Trophy Group F clash against Manchester City was added to the schedule.

Interim Rams boss Rosenior says he will use the fortnight to give his players a break after a hectic start to the campaign but also for them to be prepared for a busy period.
"I am going to speak to Luke Jenkinson (head of performance) and there will be a sustained amount of time off," he said. "The players need the rest. I have a few injury issues in terms of Lewis Dobbin, Korey Smith and young Jake Rooney.
"I need to make sure the amount of time the players have is right. They are going to need it not just for rest from the previous few games, but mentally fresh for what is going to be an incredible period coming up."
