ROBBIE Brady completed a first 90 minutes since pre-season for Burnley Under-23s in their 0-0 draw with QPR.

The winger hasn't played for the first-team this season after fracturing a rib at the end of July.

However, after 75 minutes in a behind closed doors game against Huddersfield Town last week, the 27-year-old came through 90 minutes against the Rs.

The news of Brady's fitness boost comes on the same day that Dwight McNeil has withdrawn from the England Under-21s squad.

The 19-year-old has been an ever-present for Sean Dyche's side so far this season, with his form enough to earn him a call-up to Aidy Boothroyd's squad.

But the Clarets revealed McNeil has since withdrawn from the squad with 'a minor injury'.

The Clarets dominated their latest Professional Development League game at Turf Moor, but failed to find the breakthrough they deserved.

And in the end they were thankful to goalkeeper George McMahon for a first half penalty save that earned a fourth successive draw in an unbeaten start to the season.

Brady was at the heart of the Clarets' best play, with an inswinging free-kick just evading Bobby Thomas early on.

The visitors had an excellent chance to open the scoring however, with just 10 minutes on the watch when Josh Brennan fouled Ody Alfa in the box. However, Clarets keeper McMahon, a late change to the starting line-up, saved well from Lewis Walker's penalty.

At the other end, Thomas was twice denied when connecting with another Brady set play, with his header and follow-up well saved.

As the hosts continued to push forward, Ryan Cooney then forced a good save from the 'keeper.

Visiting keeper Dickinson continued to repel the Clarets after the break as the game ended all square.

Meanwhile, Fleetwood Town have signed Burnley youngster Jimmy Dunne on loan.

The centre back has teamed up with former Clarets midfielder Joey Barton who is in charge of the League One side.

The 21-year-old defender spent the first half of last season with Hearts before switching to Sunderland in January.

The Irishman has also had spells with Barrow and Accrington Stanley but is still waiting to make his senior debut for the Clarets.
