QPR striker Dykes ‘touch and go’ for Cardiff game

QPR will make a game-day decision on the availability of in-form front man Lyndon Dykes for Wednesday’s Championship clash at Cardiff.

The Scotland striker, who scored his sixth goal of the season in Friday’s 1-1 draw with Nottingham Forest, injured his ankle in the final 10 minutes of the match but was forced to play on, with manager Mark Warburton having already used his three substitutes.

Although he left the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium in a moon boot, Warburton insisted that was merely a precautionary measure and the 26-year-old will be given every opportunity to prove his fitness.

“Lyndon is touch and go, we’ll see how he is,” Warburton said.

“He was with the medical team yesterday and we have just got to see how he is and how the inflammation calms down so it may be about seeing how he is tomorrow.

“He will get treatment at the hotel, not that we are going to risk him as we will always look after the players, but let’s see how he is in the next 24 hours.”

Meanwhile, Sam McCallum and Jordy de Wijs have been ruled out of the game with hamstring and calf injuries respectively.
