Leicester City boss Nigel Pearson makes most of break
Nigel Pearson believes Leicester City's fixture programme is completely unbalanced, but he says they just have to get on with the demands of Championship football.
City have finished a schedule of six games in the first three weeks of the season but are now in the midst of a two-week break without a game.
Instead of complaining about the schedule, Pearson said they will be focused on making the most of the international break and will concentrate on getting every member of the squad who is not away on international duty ready for the trip to face Wolves a week on Sunday.
"The games come when they come," he said. "If you get hung up about when the breaks come, along you make yourself ill.

"The bottom line is that the programme is totally unbalanced. We have months where we have had three or four games and others when there are seven games.
"We have got absolutely no control over that so there is no point getting worked up about it.
"We have seven players away, congratulations to them, and we have other players who need a bit of a top-up on fitness because they have not played games.
"There are some players who have played an awful lot of football so far, so they may need a break. It will be a tailor-made international break, so some players will rest, one or two will be tested as well and we'll get more fitness work in for one or two.
"They won't thank me for that but it is a long season, so we have to make sure that the next time we reconvene as a squad, our preparations are such that we go into the game at Wolves feeling pretty positive after the Blackpool win.
"But we need to also get an away win pretty sharpish."
