Lyndon Dykes has already hit the goal-trail for the 2021/22 season – with the Scotland striker netting an impressive brace against Manchester United for QPR.
The English Championship club hurt their Premier League visitors with a 15-minute goal flurry in the second half. Heading into the break at 1-1, QPR brought on Dykes as the former Livingston striker steps up preparations for the domestic season.
He netted twice before the hour mark. The first goal sailed into the top corner before a brilliant strike into the bottom corner for his second. Dykes’ goals set QPR on their way to a pre-season friendly victory, Moses Odubajo and Charlie Austin adding the others.
It was a response from Dykes after Scotland’s Euro 2020 campaign. The striker started all three group stage matches as Scotland were defeated by Czech Republic and Croatia, although they did earn a credible 0-0 draw against eventual runners-up England.
Back at his former club, Livingston qualified for the last 16 of the Premier Sports Cup with a 3-1 win over Cowdenbeath.
