Robbie Brady has been sorely missed by Ireland and Burnley since his knee injury last season. The 26-year-old has been out since last December after requiring surgery on his patellar tendon.
But it looks like Dubliner may be available for Ireland's crucial Nations League ties against Denmark and Wales next month after Burnley boss Sean Dyche announced that Brady is set to line out for Burnley U23s this evening:
Robbie is still a bit behind it but he’s back on the grass with us.
He’s had a few days on the grass and the plan will be to train all week now and get him back to normal first-team training.
Brady had returned to action in preseason for the Lancashire club, but a hamstring injury suffered against Montpellier has meant that he has missed the start of the Premier League season.
Ireland return to action against Denmark on the 13th of October before facing Wales in the Aviva on the 16th, and here's hoping that Brady can get a run of games under his belt by the time those fixtures come around.
