Injured Dykes withdraws from Scotland squad

Lyndon Dykes has withdrawn from the Scotland squad with a thigh injury.

The striker, who missed much of QPR’s season, was substituted at half-time during this week’s World Cup qualification play-off against Ukraine at Hampden Park, where the Scots were beaten 3-1.

Steve Clarke’s side will play Nations League matches against Armenia on Wednesday and the Republic of Ireland on Saturday, but Dykes will not be involved.

Boss Clarke said on Saturday evening that he would not be calling up a replacement.
