International R’s: Dykes delivers again for Scotland

IT was a night to remember for one of our International R’s on Tuesday.

That man was Lyndon Dykes, who delivered yet another vital goal for Scotland.

The R’s frontman fired the Scots to a crucial 1-0 win in the Faroe Islands, turning home Nathan Patterson’s late cross with just four minutes remaining.

Victory keeps Dykes and co’s World Cup qualifying bid on track, solidifying second spot ahead of third-placed Israel courtesy of a fourth successive success.

Meanwhile, Dykes made history by becoming the first Scotland player to score in four consecutive appearances – the first to do so in over 50 years.

Elsewhere, Ilias Chair and Seny Dieng were both unused substitutes for their nations.

Chair watched Morocco’s 4-1 win over Guinea from the bench, while Dieng did likewise as Senegal saw off Namibia by the same scoreline.

Victories for both sides strengthens their places at the top of their respective World Cup qualifying groups, with each preserving their 100 per cent record.

Meanwhile Osman Kakay and Sierra Leone lost their final of three friendlies in Morocco, where a late penalty saw the hosts snatch a 2-1 victory.

Dillon Barnes and Andre Gray complete the October action for our international contingent on Thursday, when Jamaica travel to Honduras.
