BOLTON Wanderers manager Ian Evatt welcomed the international break as his side looked to regroup after a second home defeat of the campaign.
Despite the 3-1 setback at the hands of Carlisle United the Whites remain in the top six in League One.
The international break gave Evatt more time to get injured players back with captain Ricardo Santos, vice-captain Gethin Jones and midfielder Paris Maghoma welcome reinforcements.
Speaking to the club’s official website after the loss, Evatt said: “We’ll come back, regroup and work hard.
“This (international) window has come at the right time to get players back. We just have to do what we can to refresh and make sure our full focus is on winning our next game against Northampton.
“We’re two points short from where we want to be of two points a game. When we fall short, we have to regroup and go again and that’s what we’ll do.”
Josh Sheehan was one of four Wanderers’ players called up for international duty, named in a 26-man Wales squad for their Euros qualifier against Croatia.
Whites’ leading scorer Dion Charles was joined in the Northern Ireland squad by Eoin Toal for their home double-header against San Marino and Slovenia.
Zac Ashworth was named in the Welsh U21s squad for a Euro qualifier away to the Czech Republic.
