“We will have time to work and get ready for the Watford match," said the former Scottish international.
“I think it will help the manager because we've got time together to work on patterns and structure and will be a better team against Watford.
“The previous manager has done a great job, but we let him down as a group of players from the start of the season until now.
“The new manager has come in and set his stall out. He wants high pressing football and this break will be good because we've got time to work together and hopefully by the Watford game we will be a better team."
