Coleman grateful for international break

An injury-ravaged side went down 2-1 at Derby on Friday night - their second successive defeat and fourth in five games, leaving them with just one point from a possible 15.

Their next test comes at home to Crystal Palace on November 21 and Coleman is hoping the breather will give his side enough time to regroup, while allowing several injured players to return and those nursing niggling problems to get the rest they need.

"There's a two-week break now - we've got to go away, lick our wounds and dust ourselves down because when you're on a bad run there's no easy way out of it. You've just to go and win your next game," he told Sky Blues Player.

"We've got Palace, which is not an easy one, we're at home and we've got to go and win, we've got to put in another positive performance. Simple as that."

He added: "We're getting one or two faces back, which we're going to need. When your having a bad time you need one or two experienced players, so this two-week break I think has come at a right time for us."
