Swansea City winger Nathan Dyer is unlikely to feature against QPR on Wednesday after he suffered a hamstring injury in the weekend win over Preston.
The 31-year-old, who had started the first two league games under new boss Steve Cooper, was forced off after just 22 minutes against North End, with Andre Ayew replacing him and the Ghanaian is likely to get the nod from the off if Dyer misses out this week.
However, Cooper told the official site that he won’t know the extent of the injury until tomorrow and that he wasn’t prepared to rule Dyer out of the trip to Loftus Road just yet.
“Nathan came off injured on the weekend, so that is still a little bit inconclusive in terms of his availability. We will obviously need to know either way tomorrow.”
The former England youth chief has enjoyed a successful start to management, with the Swans currently fourth in the Championship after picking up seven points from their opening three games and they have impressed with their stylish football.
This is slightly worrying for Swansea as Dyer is a good player at this level and he is a threat in this team with his pace and direct style.
He is also a player that Cooper clearly rates because he has put him in the XI for the three league games so far.
But, his absence will give a chance for someone else to come in and if it is Ayew, it’s not a bad replacement given his pedigree and experience! He will hope to fit in and do well in what is a tough fixture against Mark Warburton’s outfit.
