Reading boss Adkins won't comment on Southampton sacking

Reading boss Nigel Adkins refused to discuss his sacking by Southampton after being confirmed as Royals manager yesterday.

Many had sympathy with Adkins after the way he was treated at Southampton and it is typical of how things fall that they will be his second opponent.

Survival, however, is Adkins' primary focus.

"I can't talk about Southampton as it's in the hands of the League Managers' Association," he said.

"I am looking to the future, I've had two months out and gone around Europe, I'm excited about the future and passionate about playing football."
