The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE ONE -

NIGEL AD­KINS has set his Read­ing team a tar­get of at least 86 goals in the sea­son if they are to se­cure pro­mo­tion back to the Premier League.

The Roy­als added plenty of fire­power to their squad over the sum­mer with Si­mon Cox and Jamie Mackie ar­riv­ing at the Made­jski Sta­dium be­fore Glenn Mur­ray joined on loan from Crys­tal Palace on dead­line day.

“Maybe be­fore the trans­fer win­dow, when you look at our side on pa­per, there wasn’t enough goals within the team,” said for­mer Southamp­ton boss Ad­kins.

“But now there are proven goalscor­ers in there that can po­ten­tially build up the goal tally if we can get them fir­ing on all cylin­ders.”
