Blackpool striker Gary Taylor-Fletcher has warned his team-mates against resting on their laurels.
The international break could not have come at a worst time for the Seasiders after their historic win over Liverpool at Anfield last Sunday.
The 2-1 victory over the struggling Reds saw Ian Holloway's side defy pre-season expectations once again and they currently occupy ninth place in the Premier League table following other away triumphs over Wigan Athletic and Newcastle United.
It will be exactly a fortnight since their Anfield success when Blackpool play host to second-placed Manchester City and Taylor-Fletcher has urged his fellow Tangerines to not let the break disrupt their impressive start to the campaign.
"A lot of people wrote us off and said we wouldn't get 10 points all season, so to do it at the beginning of October is a magnificent achievement for the lads," he told the club's official website.
"We just need to push on from here now.
"The break comes at a good time but also at a bad time. Our form is going well but it gives us the chance to rest some tired legs and get a little fresher for the next few games.
"We'll have a little rest up and then get back to work because we need to start picking up points at home.
"But we're in a good position in that our away form might also do it for us."
