Boss' sights on top flight

Adkins keen to continue club's success

Manager Nigel Adkins is determined to build on the club's most successful period in its history by guiding the Royals back to the promise land.

The boss highlighted numerous positive aspects of the club - the strength of the first team squad, a new training ground and our successful Category One Academy - as Reading strive to return to the Barclays Premier League.

"I want to be back in the Premier League, everybody at the club wants that," said Adkins. "It was a great experience, the last ten years have been the most successful in our history since 1871. You've got to build on that success, it's hard to sustain as everyone knows but we've sampled it and want to be back.

"We've got a new training ground in the early stages, the future is bright, players have come in, we've got Category One status and the under 18s won away to Arsenal on Saturday morning.

"We are looking forward to the future, I want to be back in the Premier League with Reading Football Club. All being well it will be this year, if not this year then we'll keep knocking on the door for the years after that.

"Don't get too high when you win or too low when you lose. Then when you come to March and April and the fixtures are astronomical, hopefully we'll have a strong enough squad and enough young players blooded to deal with things."
