Queens Park Rangers manager Mark Warburton has admitted that he is hoping that Lyndon Dykes will be able to make his return to action in December.

The forward is currently being forced to watch on from the sidelines due to an issue with his ankle.

Dykes last featured for QPR in their 1-1 draw with Blackpool at Bloomfield Road.

In the Scotland international’s absence, Warburton’s side have managed to seal maximum points from their clashes with Luton Town, Huddersfield Town and Derby County.

Despite falling behind in yesterday’s meeting with the Rams, QPR produced an impressive comeback in the second-half of this fixture as strikes from Chris Willock and Andre Grady secured victory at Pride Park.

  David Prutton shares score prediction ahead of Derby County vs QPR Derby County have enjoyed excellent results in their last two matches against the Championship’s top two. The Rams ran out as 3-2 winners against Bournemouth last Sunday, before securing a 0-0 draw at Craven Cottage during the week.

As a result of this latest triumph, the Hoops moved up to third in the Championship standings.

Set to face Stoke City at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium on Sunday, QPR will be determined to pick up a positive result in this fixture.

However, Warburton will not be able to call upon the services of Dykes for this clash due to his current injury situation.

Speaking to West London Sport about the forward, the Hoops boss said: “I think he will be another week or so I hope.

“He will have a couple of injections so let’s see how he responds to those.

“He is eager to get back but we have to look after him.

“It’s just the fatigue element as he has played so many games, so hopefully not too much longer.”

The Verdict

This is a sensible approach by Warburton as Dykes could potentially suffer another injury setback if he is rushed back into action.

QPR cast eye over potential attacking recruit

By being patient in this particular situation, QPR may be able to get the best out of the forward for the remainder of the 2021/22 campaign.

Dykes has already illustrated glimpses of his talent in the Championship this season as he has scored six goals at this level.

Set to be without the forward this weekend, Warburton is likely to turn to Charlie Austin and Gray for inspiration after both players featured in yesterday’s meeting with Derby.
