I've had a tough away match with my team. One of my players was sent off after only 17. min of the first half, regarding a professional foul. Still, I manage to win 6-2, but my players are very tired and now close to, or even under, 69% match fitness.

I'm wondering if it's more wise to rest the players for one or two days in front of the next match or is it better to train them every day on a very light schedule instead. I think I've read somewhere that some players tend not to like to be told to rest for å period, but maybe that doesn't count for a few days.

Any suggestions will be appreciated ?
