West Bromwich Albion boss Steve Clarke is considering how to arrest the Baggies current dismal run of results during the international break.
Clarke gave players who did not go away with their respective countries three days off after their recent hectic schedule.
He said: "I can't relax as we're on a bad run and are not winning games.
"Earlier in the season it was nice and easy and everyone wanted to say nice things about you.
"But at the moment it's a difficult time for us and we can't work with most of the players because they've gone away on international duty."
