Robbie Brady’s injury report: Preston North End player puts up a “outstanding” performance without him



Preston North End opted not to include Robbie Brady in their squad for Friday night’s victory against Coventry City due to a thigh issue.

Despite his recent goal-scoring performance against Blackburn Rovers and a strong display against Middlesbrough earlier in the week, Brady’s absence was a precautionary measure. With Brad Potts unavailable, it seemed likely that Brady would secure another starting position against Coventry City.

However, manager Ryan Lowe decided to introduce Ali McCann into the starting lineup instead. This led to captain Alan Browne shifting to the right wing-back position, while Liam Millar filled in on the left. Although there is no major concern over Brady’s injury, Lowe was pleased with Browne’s performance in the adapted role.

Lowe explained, “Yeah, he’s fine Rob. But we didn’t want to risk him. Again, he’s been in good form and it was the last thing we wanted to do. He had a bit of tightness in his thigh. If it have been his right leg, he might’ve had a chance but because he is left-footed, we didn’t want to take any chances.”

Browne’s versatility was evident as he seamlessly adapted to the right wing-back position, drawing praise from Lowe for his outstanding performance. Despite the lineup adjustments, Lowe commended the team’s adaptability and togetherness, highlighting their ability to maintain belief and unity even amidst changes.
