James Collins believes it has done him good to come away on international duty after being disciplined by Aston Villa.
Villa manager Gerard Houllier revealed last week that action had to be taken against Collins and Richard Dunne following a row with coaching staff at a health spa.
Collins has since apologised but he does not want to dwell on the incident whilst he is focusing on Wales for the next few days.
The 27-year-old centre-back hopes to play his part in a famous victory against England on Saturday, saying: "Has it done me good to come away? Yes, it has.
"It has obviously been a difficult couple of weeks at the club for various reasons.
"Obviously what happened was not great and it is not €something I want to go into at the moment.
"It is just ideal to come away here and concentrate on one thing, which is getting three points for Wales."
Collins believes the future is bright for Wales and has paid tribute to new manager Gary Speed for his hard work in creating a fantastic team spirit since taking charge in December.
He added: "Everything has been stepped up. It sounds silly, but it is even little things like we are all wearing the same tops around the hotel.
"The preparation before training, stretching, everything. The staff have obviously worked at various clubs and brought those things with them.
"You can sense it is more of a club atmosphere. Even at dinner the guys are sitting around chatting and getting to know each other more than ever, which will obviously help on the pitch.
"There's a lot of banter going round in training, the younger boys are having more and more to say, which is a good sign.
"And the training has been stepped up in terms of intensity, organisation and enthusiasm.
"It all seems to have gone up so hopefully we can take that into the game."
Collins is in contention to take the captain's armband for Wales as Speed mulls over who to make his next leader following Craig Bellamy's decision to vacate the role.
The issue has not become a major talking point, however, unlike John Terry's reinstatement as permanent England skipper.
Collins is not thinking about Fabio Capello's concerns, though, saying: "It's been well documented about what's happened at England and giving the captaincy back to John Terry.
"A lot of people might have raised an eyebrow about it but he's a leader and has been a great captain."
Collins has warned England to expect an attacking approach from Wales, who will be looking to utilise the talents of their star men.
"With the players we've got going forward, the likes of Gareth Bale and Craig Bellamy on the wings, it will be a completely different game," said Collins, referring to the 1-0 defeat at the hands of England in 2005.
"We know that's our strength, we've got to take the game to them.
"We'll work on that in training, on attacking them.
"If you sit back they're good players and a good team, they will punish you so we are certainly going to have a right go at them.
"If there's one more thing the manager has changed it is that he's come in and is instilling his own ways on how he wants us to play, with people going forward.
"I certainly wouldn't have thought we're going to die wondering."
