Lyndon Dykes capped off a stunning week with a debut QPR goal – something he was obviously delighted about.
The Scotland international has had a whirlwind few weeks. His form at Livingston has earned him a move to QPR, with his Lions form also enough for him to bring himself into Steve Clarke’s national team plans.
He made his debut earlier this month, doing well on his debut against Israel before scoring away to Czech Republic last Monday. After two good outings in navy blue, it was time for his QPR debut.
That was a dream come true as well, winning and scoring a penalty that helped Mark Warburton’s side on their way to a 2-0 win over Nottingham Forest. Dykes says it was a great way to end a ‘crazy week.’
“It couldn’t have been any better, a goal and a win, hopefully we can get another win next week,” said Dykes (QPR). “I ran in-behind and got in front of the defender.
“I went down in the box and got the penalty. The contact was there and I was happy to have the chance to score from the spot. It wasn’t decided before the game and I said I wanted it.
“I got the ball and smashed it into the net. I probably could have hit it harder! I loved it, it’s unfortunate the fans aren’t in the stadium but on a personal note I was buzzing for it. It’s been a crazy week.
“It’s a physical game, it asks a lot of you, but I’m up to the challenge.”
