Robbie Delighted To Be Off The Mark

Brady's first league goal of the season secures 'vital' three points

30 November 2017

Robbie Brady opened his Premier League goals’ account for the season and hopes there are more to come after banking three more points at Bournemouth.

Brady’s sizzling second-half strike proved to the winner in a 2-1 victory for the Clarets at the Vitality Stadium which lifted them up to sixth place in the Premier League.

The in-form winger had earlier laid on the opening goal for Chris Wood before his curling effort, which took a slight deflection of Nathan Ake, gave Sean Dyche’s enough of a cushion to ride out Josh King’s late reply.

“I caught it quite nice,” Brady told Clarets Player HD after adding to his two Carabao Cup goals against Blackburn Rovers and Leeds United.

“I think it took a bit of a nick on the way in but I was just happy to see it go in and see us get the three points.

“I have been waiting long enough, so I’m just happy to get off the mark and hopefully in the weeks to come I can add a few more.

“It was another great performance away from home. We knew we would have to start quick and that’s what we did and put them on them on the back foot.

“We created some good chances in the first half and I though we dominated. It was excellent from the lads and another vital three points.”

Burnley buried the disappointment of losing to a last-gasp goal to Arsenal last Sunday as they put one over former boss Eddie Howe on his 40th birthday to make it four away wins.

A superb first-half performance epitomised the Clarets’ early season form with Brady believing they could easily have added to Wood’s fifth Burnley goal of the campaign as Dyche’s men continue to develop as a top-flight force.

The Republic of Ireland international - who needed strapping to his swollen right hand after it was trapped under a defender’s boot – added: “Maybe it could have been a goal or two more with the chances we created.

“I think we were a bit unlucky, but it was a fantastic performance from the lads and we will keep marching on. We are moving in the right direction.

“We are capable of putting points on the board and if we keep performing the way we are we can put plenty more on, so long may it continue.

“It’s instilled into us from everything we do through the week, so to go out and perform like we have been is fantastic for the lads, the staff and everybody involved.”
