Praise for 'natural finisher'

Manager Nigel Adkins heaped praise on Adam Le Fondre after he made it two goals in two pre-season games this summer.

Having scored against Wycombe on Saturday, Adam added another goal against Belenenses with a lovely touch and finish from Jobi McAnuff's pass.

Adkins said after the game, "It was a fantastic goal and he did ever so well.

"We've got a natural finisher. He's done ever so well in pre-season, we're really pleased with him and with what he adds to our group of players."

Speaking to the Reading Post the boss added, "He's a player I've always admired, going back to his days at Stockport.

"If you've got a goalscorer in your team you've always got a chance of winning things. We've got that here.

"In tight games you know a chance will be created and he won't need many chances to finish them, as proved in this game."
