Republic of Ireland midfielder Robbie Brady suffered a nasty knee injury in Burnley’s weekend defeat to Leicester City – and is now set for a lengthy period on the sidelines.
Brady has been a crucial player for The Clarets and is a big part of the reason they are as high as seventh in the league as we approach the busy Christmas schedule.
Unfortunately, however, the Dubliner may miss the festive matches as he awaits news on the injury which saw him stretchered off in the 1-0 reversal.
Manager Sean Dyche said, via the Irish Independent:
“We’re waiting on news but we think it’s more serious than not serious”
It will be an anxious wait for Dyche and Burnley’s supporters as if Brady can come back sooner rather than later they can keep up the form that has seen them suffer just four defeats in 15 Premier League outings.
“It’s a blow because Robbie has been excellent lately. Some of his deliveries (on Saturday) were excellent and he’s settled into the team nicely.
“He’s a good character in the group and he’s been building with his performances.”
Watford, Stoke and Brighton are up next for the Turf Moor club before huge games with Spurs and Manchester United over the Christmas period.
