Queens Park Rangers manager Mark Warburton confirmed that Rob Dickie missed their draw with Watford on Saturday afternoon with a rolled ankle and that the club will monitor him ahead of the Hoops next fixture with Rotherham United.
The Hoops came from behind to draw 1-1 with Watford at the Kiyan Prince Foundation stadium on Saturday afternoon as Ilias Chair’s well-taken second-half finish cancelled out Ben Wilmot’s early opener for the Hornets.
One of the talking points from the team news prior to kick-off, meanwhile, was that Rob Dickie was missing from the squad, with Conor Masterson partnering Yoann Barbet at the back for the R’s.
Indeed, Warburton was asked about the former Oxford United defender after the game and he revealed that a rolled ankle was the reason behind his absence:

In the end, Dickie wasn’t missed too much on an afternoon where QPR may well feel as though they should have got all three points.
Watford offered little in the second-half to threaten the home side and it will be now a wait to see if Dickie is fit to take to the pitch on Tuesday with the Rotherham game coming up fast.
