Lyndon Dykes is off the mark for the new season after Scotland’s number nine netted in a comfortable QPR victory over Hull City.
The former Livingston forward netted the third QPR goal in a 3-0 win away to Hull in the English Championship. It’s Dykes’ first strike in competitive action since returning from Euro 2020 with the national team in June.
He will link up with Steve Clarke’s Scotland squad next month for three crucial World Cup 2022 qualifiers against Denmark, Moldova and Austria. A training ground routine, Dykes moved off his man from a Stefan Johansen corner to score the eventual winner for QPR.
Dykes said of his first goal of the season: “It was amazing. It was our first away game and we worked very hard.
“We ended up scoring a few goals to make things a bit easier for ourselves. I was just happy to see my goal hit the back of the net. I got away from my defender and it’s good to get that first one for the season.”
