QPR striker Lyndon Dykes says he loves playing with Southampton forward Che Adams when the pair represent Scotland together.

Dykes scored twice for Scotland head coach Steve Clarke as the national team took six points from nine available over three games against Denmark, Moldova and Austria during September’s international break. The 1-0 win over Austria was secured by the QPR man netting a penalty after Southampton forward Adams won a penalty.

It’s a partnership working well according to Dykes: “The partnership with Che worked well. It’s not as easy as people think – you need to hold the ball up and the team up the pitch. I love playing with Che, we play well with each other and hopefully we can keep it going in the future.

“We haven’t played together for very long but sometimes you just click. We have both played in front twos for our clubs and I am sure the manager has seen that.

 

“Myself and Che have a great little partnership going but Kevin Nisbet did well the other night too. There is good competition and I will play with anyone. It’s up to the manager to decide who plays but myself and Che worked hard together up there.”
