Training translates to games

30 January 2014

Adkins pleased with performances

Reading's players have backed up their unity at the training ground with performances out on the pitch in the Championship - that is the view of manager Nigel Adkins.

The Royals have won three of their last four games, and have scored 12 goals in our last two matches at Madejski Stadium to become the leading home scorers in the division.

The boss has been impressed with the players' unity, and crucially the ability for that to translate when they cross the white line.

He said, "We've got a togetherness, which is very important, and now we're backing it up with performances. 

"The workrate of the whole team is phenomenal, and the group is having a right good go for each other.

"Pav and Alfie are a massive threat together, Hope and Danny Williams did ever so well in the middle of the park, winning the ball with loads of energy.

"On the left Jordan and Jobi, wow what a partnership and so attacking. Then on the right Chrissy Gunter and Garath McCleary, creating great opportunities.

"The two centre halves look rock solid don't they. And don't forget the goalkeeper!"

"On top of that we've had impact from the bench, Hal scored on Tuesday, Nick Blackman came on and Michael Hector got an opportunity which is pleasing.

"Like I say, Hal Robson-Kanu has been out for a bit but scored a cracking goal and did very well.

"Let's just keep the momentum going and we're really looking forward to the second half of the season."
