Manager thanks supporters for welcomeNigel Adkins was officially introduced to the Reading fans for the first time prior to our game with Southampton, and received a terrific reception.
The manager took to the field shortly before kick off to applaud the Royals supporters and was warmly welcomed - whilst the visiting Saints contingent also made their appreciation known.
"The Reading fans have been superb since I joined the football club and I’m looking forward to a really good growing relationship with them," said Adkins.
"I’d like to think they know we’re going to have a team that works hard and we want to play football. But at this moment in time we need to get points on the board and we’ve got to win games."
