Result pleases manager
Reading started the game superbly, and only three away sides had previously won at Forest in the League in 2013.
In addition, with a back four playing together for only the second time and it being the first time we had fielded that particular starting XI, Adkins was rightly pleased with the scoreline.
He said. "It was a very good performance.
He continued. "It was really pleasing for Danny Williams to get 90 minutes, great credit to him.
"We were conscious of whether he would last, but he kept going. He gave us that energy and drive in the middle of the park and played well, like a lot of players."
Adkins continued to be bold in his substitutions, bringing on Sharp and Blackman as we led 3-2, and he commented, "A lot of things go through your mind. All I can say is, we're used to winning things. Our record shows that, you have to be bold when you make moves.
