Adkins praise for Drenthe
In the last four games the Dutchman has made a very good contribution; against Yeovil he came on and won a penalty then helped create the equaliser, he scored his first Reading goal at Brighton before thumping home a brilliant free kick at Leeds, and then on Saturday against Derby he was again influential.
Adkins heaped praise on the 26-year-old following Saturday's match, saying, "I thought Royston had a great game, he was brilliant.
"For me, he's turned a massive corner. From a fitness point of view, the whole thing.
"We've talked about his ability, it's unquestioned, and I've been delighted with Royston of late and made that perfectly clear.
"Late on I thought he got bogged down away from the goal, we thought Nick Blackman might get away from Eustace and he did that and got a chance on the back of it.
"But like I said, I thought Royston had a very, very good game."
