Robbie Brady Scores Penalty Past Irish Left-Back Standing In As 'Keeper

Robbie Brady Scores Penalty Past Irish Left-Back Standing In As 'Keeper

The Championship is fantastic. It's bloody mental and there's never a dull weekend. Whether it's Ian Holloway ranting, Rafa Benitez working his magic, or the Irish taking over, it's always entertaining.

We've already told you about Ryan Manning, Conor Hourihane, and Liam Kelly having pretty good days, but Robbie Brady seems to find himself back in favour at Norwich

He was linked away from Carrow Road during the week with Sunderland apparently making a bid for the Irish international. That was put behind him for today's visit of Wolves.

Brady's opposing number (at least positionally) for Wolves is Matt Doherty. Usually, you'd expect them to come up against each other down the wing, or perhaps from a corner. Not from a penalty kick.

But alas, this is the Championship and that's what happened. Wolves keeper Carl Ikeme hacked down Wes Hooalahan in the box and was controversially dismissed. With all three subs used, we got the wonderful moment where an outfield player has to don the keeper's shirt.

The responsibility fell on Doherty to face up against Brady. He used precisely none of his GAA background in what was a pathetic attempt at a penalty save, even by a defender's standard.

It was Brady's third goal of a quiet enough season for the left back, who may not even be in a canary shirt for next Saturday's visit of Lukas Jutkiewicz's Birmingham.

By the way, that kit clash is an absolute disgrace.
