A concerning update has been made on QPR’s Lyndon Dykes after being admitted to hospital when he was subbed off in the 1-1 draw with Swansea.
The Queens Park Rangers striker was taken to the hospital, with it initially reported that it was due to illness, feeling sick at half time of that game.
On Thursday, he returned to training and was scheduled to travel to Hull to take part in Saturday’s Championship match at MKM Stadium.
He became ill again Friday, and was admitted to the hospital, with fans, staff and players wishing him all the best recovering at the weekend.

Meanwhile, Livingston boss David Martindale wished Lyndon Dykes a quick recovery, claiming pneumonia has put the ex-Livi player in hospital.
The manager said, as per FootballMad: “The big man texted me yesterday actually and he sent me a picture, he had been watching Soccer AM in his hospital bed.
“Hopefully the big man makes a recovery very, very soon.
“Lyndon had Covid before Covid was a thing in Scotland. We were going to Ibrox, he trained on the Friday and he phoned me on the Saturday morning to say he had been up all night and had been to the hospital for an X-ray, saying he couldn’t breathe.
“For me, Lyndon struggled to get over that Covid. I thought at one point he had long Covid and now he has pneumonia.
“So he has not had the best of times of it over the past couple of years in terms of his lungs and cardiovascular side of it but everybody at Livingston just wants him back playing football as quick as possible. Hopefully the big man can make a quick recovery.”
