Reading Appoint Nigel Adkins as Manager

Reading, this morning confirmed the appointment of former Southampton manager Nigel Adkins.

Up until earlier this season, Adkins had been at the helm with the Saints, having guided them to two successive promotions to the Premier League.

Results however, were considered not good enough and he was sacked.

Reading on the other hand, had also just been promoted the when manager Brian McDermott was sacked with little over 10 games to go.

The replacement from McDermott to Adkins is certainly a shrewd and somewhat risky one.

After all, at the start of the season, both teams were in the same situation and looked to be in it for the long haul trying to keep both teams up.

Nevertheless, it will certainly be intriguing to see whether both teams stay up. This will also confirm whether both clubs made the right decisions.
