QPR manager Mark Warburton says he needed to look after Lyndon Dykes at the weekend as he has ‘a big summer ahead of him’ with Scotland.

The striker has been in brilliant form for QPR recently as the English Championship season ends ahead of Scotland’s Euro 2020 run. He finishes the season with 12 goals and notched an assist at the weekend against Luton Town, but Dykes was substituted at half-time through injury.

Warburton says it was a ‘precautionary’ measure: “For Lyndon to go down – he never goes down and he’s as hard as a piece of teak. But I don’t think the doctor was too concerned and Lyndon was desperate to come back onto the pitch because he thought he was OK.

“The doctor said he wanted to be cautious, and we’ll always listen to the medical staff.  So that was more precautionary, I hope. He looks OK – and the way he’s attacking the food in the dressing room, he looks fantastic. He knows he’s got a big summer ahead of him, and we need to look after our players.”
