Wednesday's players have been given a few days off to rest and recuperate following a busy August. They are set to report back for training on Thursday in preparation for the trip to Huddersfield Town, which takes place on Sunday, September 15.

"It (the break) is a good opportunity to recharge the batteries and work on things," said Fox. "We have to cut out the silly mistakes and put them right.

"We are not where we want to be and we are now playing catch up so we have to get results.

"I think we have made a steady start to the season but we will see where we are at the end of September."
