Crawley boss Richie Barker says his players are eager to get back to action against Bradford on Saturday after their enforced break.
Town were without a match last weekend after the clash with Bristol City was postponed due to international call-ups.
Barker hopes his side will quickly shake off any rustiness as they bid to extend their unbeaten run in the league to seven matches.
"When you have not played in 11 days there should be a freshness in mentality and a freshness physically," he told the club website.
"The players had a couple of days off at the weekend but they have worked extremely hard this week and I think it's done everyone good.
"But when you have that kind of break - like we had a numerous times last year with the weather - you don't really know what you are going to get.
"You have to hope we start the game positively. The players have enjoyed their little break and they are ready to go again."
