Reading boss McDermott: Hope Akpan will be fans' favourite

Reading boss Brian McDermott is convinced Hope Akpan will be a fans' favourite.

Akpan was snapped up from Crawley Town yesterday.

McDermott said: "He's played more than 50 games for Crawley already, and any of our fans at the game on Saturday will have seen the qualities he brings, he is hungry and will be very committed to our cause. We're delighted to get him and I know our fans will give him every support in his time here."
