Adkins: Fulham ideal example for Reading to follow

Reading boss Nigel Adkins sees today's opponents Fulham as a model to follow.

Adkins' relegated Royals are keen to copy how the Cottagers have cemented their place in the top flight and grown year on year since promotion in 2001.

Boss Adkins said: "Clubs like Fulham and West Brom - can we establish ourselves like them?

"We've been in the Premier League, but the object now is can we get back there and then become established?

"It might be the case that you yo-yo until that happens.

"The infrastructure has to be right, too, and we are definitely in the right line for that."
