North Queensland Fury’s Chris Grossman insists the playing group is happy to not have this week away from training.

As other A-League clubs make the most of the FIFA international break, the Fury will be working hard to get their game back on track in an attempt to shoot up the table when play resumes next week.

“You can only get the break with the points you get. We're not exactly where we want to be at the moment, so we need to keep training, working hard to get there," Grossman told the Townsville Bulletin.

"If we were sitting top of the table, sitting pretty, then you can start looking forward to a break, but at the moment we need to be picking up points and the only way you can do that is to be training hard."

New recruit Andre Kilian, who has appeared in the last two Fury matches, agreed with Grossman.

It's professional, so you can't really have a pause during the season ... especially if it's not working well now with our points - we have to work on the small things to get better and better," Kilian said.

"If it is a tough week we can do recovery - swimming and gym and all that stuff to recover - but to do nothing? I think that's the wrong sign for the boys, especially the young boys, so you just keep working on the small things."

The Fury return to action on Friday, October 15 with a home match against the Perth Glory.
