Tony Mowbray says he'll use the two week break as a chance to give his squad some rest and recovery following a busy schedule.

Since Saturday 15th September, Rovers have faced Aston Villa, Derby County, Stoke City, Bournemouth, Nottingham Forest, Sheffield United and Bolton Wanderers in a hectic last couple of weeks.
And Mowbray has admitted that players will be allocated some time off following a run which has been tiring on the legs with the games coming thick and fast.
“We’ll get the balance between rest and work over that two week break before we go into another huge run of games," Mowbray said to iFollow Rovers when discussing the break in games.
"Leeds United at home will soon be upon us, a sidewho will bring almost 8,000 supporters.I saw them against Hull City and they were very, very impressive in the way they played.
“We then follow up o that with Swansea and West Bromwich Albion away - two sides relegated from the Premier League. We have tough games, but as I’ve said plenty of times this season, these at the games we should be looking forward to.
“It’s a lot different to going to AFC Wimbledon, Rochdale and Bury, so we should enjoy the atmospheres and playing these teams. Let’s try and compete and not get ahead of ourselves. We want teams to know they are in for a game playing us.
"We've had something like eight games in 23 days, with a bit of travelling thrown in there. It's been tough on the boys and I think the international break has perhaps come at a good time for us."
