LUFC Grayson glad to take a break

Leeds United boss Simon Grayson believes the international break came along at a good time for some of his players.

The majority of the Leeds squad are enjoying two weeks without a game whilst the international games take centre stage and after an hectic period of games, where Leeds have played eight games in thirty seven days, Grayson says it will give some of his players chance to take a break.

Speaking on the official website, Grayson said, "Over the last few weeks the players have really been playing to the maximum in terms of the effort they have put in. We played a large part of the Blackpool game with 10 men and there was a huge effort at Leicester so it's come at a good time.
"They trained at the back end of last week, had the weekend off because they needed a breather, and then the build-up to Burnley started on Monday morning.
"Some of the lads have been away and others have had chance to rest tired bodies and recover from niggles which have built up over the past few weeks."

Leeds still have six players on international duty. Andy Keogh and Darren O`Dea are away with Republic of Ireland as they try to book their place in next year`s European championship finals.

oth were unused substitutes in the first leg of their play-off game with Estonia on Friday night as they took a giant step towards qualification with a 4-0 win. The second leg takes place in Dublin on Tuesday night.

Robert Snodgrass was away with Scotland last week but played no part in their friendly win over Cyprus on Friday night due to a leg injury.

Aidan White is on under 21 international duty tonight (Monday), with Republic of Ireland, in their Euro 2013 qualifier against Liechtenstein.

Mika Vayrynen and Mikael Forssell are away with Finland for their friendly with Denmark on Tuesday night.
