Boss delighted after 3-1 win
We scored three goals inside the last half hour to move back into the play-off places, and our destiny is in our own hands when we play Burnley at Madejski Stadium on Saturday.
Adkins said, "It was an excellent win away from home.
"The togetherness was there, and importantly it was there at the right time of the season. The passion was there as well."
There were many individuals who played a key role in the win, and there was praise for young Jake Taylor, who made his first appearance in six weeks to set up our second goal.
Adkins said, "Jake did great for us at an important time, he's been with us since the age of 8, he hasn't featured much recently but he trains magnificently and we had confidence to put him in there. It was a super cross from him for the second goal."
Mikele Leigertwood played 90 minutes on his first start for more than a year, and the boss commented, "I've said it so many times about Ledge, what a great man he is. To have been out for over year and put that performance in was great, you say sensational, and it was great for the team."
He continued, "Late in the game they put the big man on, we knew it would go into the mixer so we were able to change it quickly. Kaspars has been out of the team but we were able to bring him and Michael Hector on to see the game out.
