6 October 2013

Leigertwood praised by manager

Nigel Adkins has given glowing praise to Mikele Leigertwood, as the midfielder returns to full training at Hogwood Park.

The central midfielder, who scored the goal that sealed promotion to the Premier League for the Royals in 2012, has been sidelined with an ankle injury after undergoing surgery this summer.

"With Ledge, his attitude is spot on," said Adkins.

"What a top, top, top man - the ultimate professional. I can’t wait to get him fully fit and available again because I’ve been really, really impressed with him to be honest. It's not about 11 players, I keep talking about that.ts about competition over this grueling season. We've waited this long so I want to make sure it's spot on."
