Royals manager Nigel Adkins has underlined the importance of the Royals supporters to the football club.
In his exclusive chat with Reading FC Player, Adkins said that the players, the manager and the supporters must all be united in order for the club to be successful.
"We all want the same thing. We want to be in the Premier League, we want to be successful," Adkins exclusively told Reading FC Player.
"The supporters are the football club. It's their football club. They want to see players that can go out and be totally committed to the cause. They want to be inspired, they want to be off their seats and they want to be able to lift the players.
"The supporters have got to lift the players and the players have got to lift the supporters. We've all got to be together. I had a great relationship with the supporters at Bangor City, Scunthorpe United and Southampton - and I'd love to think we've got a great relationship in store here at Reading."
