Republic of Ireland midfielder Robbie Brady has been dealt another injury blow after limping out of Burnley’s Premier League win over Crystal Palace with a suspected hamstring injury.

The luckless Dubliner was forced off less than 20 minutes into his substitute appearance on Monday as the Clarets recorded their first win of the season at Turf Moore.

Chris Wood’s first-half goal proved enough to earn three points for Sean Dyche’s side and lift them out of the bottom three for the first time this season.

There were mixed emotions for St Kevin’s Boys product Brady, however, as the 28-year-old pulled up with a soft tissue injury just 17 minutes after replacing Johann Berg Gudmundsson.

“I will have to wait and see but I will find out more tomorrow. It looks like he’s done his hamstring,” Dyche told local media after the game.

The winger has struggled with injury since his club-record £13 million switch from Norwich City in January of 2017.

A knee injury sustained following a collision with then-Leicester City defender Harry Maguire ended his first full season with the Clarets prematurely in December 2017.

He suffered a hamstring injury on his return to action the following June and missed much of the season as he recovered from the complaint.

Brady, Dyche and Ireland manager Stephen Kenny, who has given the former Manchester United trainee a prominent role in his first games in charge, will hope the latest injury isn’t a recurrence.
