Queens Park Rangers take on Coventry City on Good Friday as the Easter EFL schedule is ushered in soon after the international break.
The Hoops have been impressive since the turn of the year, it must be said, and they’ll be looking to now pick that up again between now and the end of the season.
Indeed, starting well on Friday will provide a springboard to that but there are two early dilemmas Mark Warburton needs to deal with for that game.
Let’s look at them now…
Lyndon Dykes on international duty
Dykes showed some good form just before the break.
After dropping out of the side he ran himself ragged against Millwall and then built on that with a goal against Reading before the international period.
He’s linked up with Scotland and if he plays for them on Wednesday in their final international it is hard to see him then playing for QPR on Friday.
How Warburton deals with that remains to be seen.
Of course, most QPR players are not on international duty and will be available for the Coventry game but, with Nottingham Forest following up on Monday, squad preservation will be at the forefront of Warburton’s mind.
He’s done well to manage the squad through this season and the Hoops now have two games in four days to deal with.
Of course, they should be rested during this current break but with that comes the chance for niggles as the season resumes and they’ll need to watch for that.
