The centre-back has been outstanding for the R’s this season and he continued his excellent form by incredibly scoring his fourth goal of the campaign with an excellent long-range effort against the League One side.
Given his love for Oxford, a club he made over 100 appearances for, Dickie didn’t celebrate but he took to Twitter to reveal just how much the night meant to him, as he was also replaced late on to a standing ovation.
“Good win and always nice to get a goal! Thanks to all the fans who showed up, home and away. Huge honour to captain this club last night.”
The form of the defender has unsurprisingly caught the eye of top-flight clubs, with Wolves and Leeds both credited with an interest in the 25-year-old ahead of the transfer deadline on Tuesday.
However, Mark Warburton will be confident of keeping Dickie in the capital as he looks to build a team that can push for promotion.
Did these 20 things happen to QPR in 2020?
This was a special occasion for Dickie as he was coming up against his old club, and he clearly still has a lot of time for Oxford, which is understandable.
So, to cap it off with another brilliant goal, on a night when he also captained the team, means it was the perfect evening for him.
Oxford fans will be pleased to see how his career has progressed since he departed, whilst R’s supporters will be hoping that he remains at the club beyond the deadline as he will be crucial to their promotion hopes.
