Brady Boosted By Clarets' Character

6 February 2017

Robbie Brady was impressed with his first drop of the Clarets' team spirit.

And Burnley's record-buy is looking forward to reaping the benefits after getting a taste of things to come on his claret and blue debut.

Brady came off the bench at Watford to make his first appearance since his record-breaking deadline-day move from Norwich City.

The Republic of Ireland international played for more than half an hour at Vicarage Road as Burnley battled back from two goals down following the early dismissal of Jeff Hendrick.

And even though Sean Dyche's men couldn't quite rescue a point, Brady was encouraged by what he saw in a 2-1 defeat which leaves the Clarets still waiting for a first away win.

Brady said: "The lads showed great fight and determination. It's difficult when you go down to 10 men so early, so I thought the lads did excellent.

"It was disappointing to concede the second goal just before half-time. That was a little bit of a killer.

"But the lads showed what they are about in the second half, pulled together and we put on a good performance.

"We had enough chances to maybe nick a draw.

"It shows the character the lads have here. I'm delighted just to be a part of it now. To play my part was good - although it wasn't the result we wanted - and I will pick up from this.

"It showed good camaraderie from the lads and we will go again."

Brady's impact from the bench showed instantly that he will add greatly to the Clarets' attacking options.

And the former Hull City wideman is relishing the prospect of a potential home debut against Premier League leaders Chelsea at Turf Moor next Sunday.

Brady told Clarets Player HD: "It wasn't to be on Saturday but we will push on and go again next week.

"The lads' home form has been tremendous. It was another great win against Leicester, which I got to witness, which was brilliant.

"Hopefully we can build on that and push forward in the table."
