The newly-promoted Drogs faced Galway United at Eamonn Deacy Park in the opening fixture of the SSE Airtricity League Premier Division season, but lost Brennan two minutes into the second half with Sean Thornton coming on in his place.

Despite the setback, Pete Mahon’s side went on to claim a 1-0 victory thanks to a late winner from substitute Gareth McCaffrey.

The Irish Mirror reported last night that it was a broken collarbone and the club has confirmed the news to The42 — adding that they expect him to be sidelined for between eight to ten weeks.

Former PFAI Player of the Year Brennan has won league titles with Bohemians and St Patrick’s Athletic and joined his hometown club from Shamrock Rovers in January.

Drogheda are at home to St Pat’s this Friday night.
