Defender Jonas Olsson believes the international break has come at the right time for West Brom.
The Baggies have lost top spot in the Coca-Cola Championship after losing to Crystal Palace and Barnsley and drawing against Preston.
But vice-captain Olsson expects Albion to be revitalised after a two-week break following a hectic schedule in recent weeks.
He told the club's official website: "There are a lot of games in the Championship and this month has been very intense for us.
"We've been playing Saturday, Tuesday, Saturday, Tuesday every week and I think everyone feels you need to take a good rest.
"If you've seen us over the last few weeks, apart from our draw at Preston, I think we've been struggling a bit. This is a good time to regroup and reflect on how far we've come."
