Dave Jones says the international break has come at the perfect time for Championship Sheffield Wednesday.
The Owls have picked up seven points from their opening four games this season and sit sixth in the table.
"We have had a relatively decent start but we have got another seven games to cram in a short space of time when we come back," said Jones.
"We will be playing three games a week so we have got to make sure we utilise the squad we have got and keep everyone up and running."
Jones also hopes the break will allow sidelined players extra recovery time to be back in contention for the trip to Brighton.
"They are all receiving treatment from the physio but I would hope they will be okay for Sunday when we will resume training," Jones added.
