Southampton winger Puncheon backing Adkins for Reading job
The Royals parted company with Brian McDermott on Monday.
Saints midfielder Puncheon told the Daily Echo: "Reading's out there for him, I suppose. His name is getting touted about and I think he can do a job for them.
"Nigel's proved that while he was here [at Southampton] and I think he will get another job and I do wish him all the best when he does get that."
