Gus Poyet tonight admitted that the international break has come at the right time for his team following the 0-0 draw at Derby County.
The Albion boss expects Craig Mackail-Smith, Andrew Crofts and Vicente all to be fit when his side resume their fixtures against Middlesbrough at the Amex in two weeks' time.
He said, "It is coming at a good time for us. We have had a few injuries and a few players who were close to being out but in two weeks' time we will have everyone available which is very good for the manager.
"I am pleased with where we are, in fifth place, we have 18 points from ten games and we are in a great position in the league. It's up to us now.
"The players are confident and we are doing well. We should have Crofty, Macca, Bucka back and Vicente ready after the international break."
Poyet admitted his team is missing the goals of Mackail-Smith, but was pleased with the solidity of his side, adding, "We were decent today. We created chances and we certainly deserved something from this game.
"I am always disappointed if we don't win but I'll go back home happy with the team because we did what I was expecting. We controlled the game and I am relaxed with result."
Poyet revealed he had hoped to use Will Buckley's pace to exploit Derby, based on how they have played at home this season, but was surprised by Nigel Clough's decision to opt for a more defensive, deeper 4-5-1 formation.
"They are a very young, energetic and aggressive side and they have been pressing teams very high up the pitch, which usually leaves space in behind. We tried to change slightly but they changed to a 4-5-1 formation today, which we are getting used to now.
"Again, last season we might have lost that game at the end, but with the experience on the pitch we were strong.
"Tano was not very happy when we won at Millwall, because of the way we finished the game but he is happy today because we were a proper team out there. We had chances and we proved again that we are a good team."
