Robbie Brady has brushed off a debut defeat following his record-breaking move to Burnley and the Ireland star says he's seen enough of his Clarets team-mates to fill him with confidence.

Brady, signed for £13million last week, came off the bench for his Burnley debut away to Watford but could not prevent a 2-1 loss, Burnley's cause not helped by an early sending-off for fellow Dubliner Jeff Hendrick.

With Hendrick suspended for Sunday's test against champions-elect Chelsea, Brady is almost certain to start for his full debut after that cameo as a sub in Watford.

""It wasn't to be on Saturday but we will push on and go again next week. To play my part was good - although it wasn't the result we wanted - and I will pick up from this," said Brady, on as a 55th minute sub in the loss at Vicarage Road, his side down to 10 men after a red card on six minutes for Hendrick.

"It showed good camaraderie from the lads and we will go again. 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," added Brady. His side are at home to Chelsea on Sunday.
