Lyndon on his Injury.....

Post by Steve Russell »

Gutted for him, get well soon Lyndon.
Robbie Hanratty for the Glasgow Times.....

The Queen's Park Rangers talisman suffered ankle ligament damage just days after meeting
up with the national team squad to prepare for Euro 2024.

He was subsequently withdrawn from the camp and rued out the major tournament that begins in
Munich on June 14.

And the 28-year-old admits just how tough the setback is proving to be.

"It's been really tough for me and I tried my best to make it, but I went to see the QPR medical team
and they ruled me out and that was that," he told BBC Sportsound.

"No-one was near me and it was off a cross and I sort of lunged and my studs got caught in the grass.

"My body kept going forward and my leg just stopped, so at first we were very worried about my knee
because it was a very awkward fall.

"A few of us, myself included, we heard a cracking sound, which is not pleasant.

"It wasn't very pleasant and very unfortunate," he said. "We were worried about my knee and you would
be out for a long time, so I took the positive out of it.

"I've had my wife and kids around me, looking after me. It's been tough, but I've dealt with it and I just
want to support the boys as much as I can."

Dykes is still going to join his teammates over in Germany where he will continue his rehabilitation while
supporting the lads from the sidelines.

"Because it was so close, I want to go out with the boys and I've got that option to be with them and be
around," he explained.

"I want to be out there and not dwelling on the injury. Maybe I can give a bit around the backroom."
