Reading striker Adam Le Fondre is being backed for an England call.

Royals’ record goal-scorer Trevor Senior has called on England boss Roy Hodgson to take a close look at Le Fondre.

Senior, who netted 191 times for Reading in two spells at the club during the 1980s and early 1990s, told the Reading Post: “Anybody who scores goals at the top level needs to be looked at.

“I know Reading have been in the bottom three for most of the season, but he’s been scoring against top sides. It wouldn’t hurt to take a look at him.

“Brian McDermott knows him better than me, though, so it’s hard to say. But what I like about Le Fondre is that he is always moving and anticipating things.

“That’s close to my own heart as it’s what I used to do. He’s a lot better than me, though. He’s not the biggest of players, but he gets in the right positions.”
