In 2003 he joined Swansea City on a free transfer who were then managed by Brian Flynn. He made 13 appearances for them in the 2003/04 season but did not get a look-in the following season due to the form of Willy Gueret.

After three years at Dalymount Park, and having made 97 league appearances, Brian signed for Roy Keane at Ipswich Town late in 2009. In 2011 he moved on to Queens Park Rangers, though injury and the form of Paddy Kenny, limited his first team opportunities at Loftus Road.
