Stephen Ward knows Burnley will struggle without Robbie Brady

Republic of Ireland international Stephen Ward admits he fears the worst after Robbie Brady suffered an injury with the potential to be season ending.

The Dubliner was stretchered half after 30 minutes of Burnley 1-0 loss to Leicester City in the Premier League last Saturday.

The 25-year-old jarred his knee after landing awkwardly under a tackle from Harry Maguire. Ward told the Burnley Express that Brady represents a massive loss:

"Obviously we don't know the extent of it yet but it didn't look great. Fingers crossed that it's not as bad as it looked. He's been outstanding for us recently and if it is bad he'll be a massive loss for us.

"It would be a massive blow. We'll await the news and we wish him well because he's been great for us. He's great to have in the dressing room too so our thoughts are with him if it is bad.

"It's another test for the squad but we've dealt with these kind of set backs before."
