Following investigations and scans it has now been confirmed that the Republic of Ireland international as suffered a patellar tendon tear.

Very bad news,, but could be another cloud with a silver lining. Popey has proven himself, is there another player who will do the same? or will SD find another gem in the Jan transfer market? Come on you Cllarets we can still get a top ten finish even if we have to accept that with Brady out a Champions League place is doubtful.
