NIGE BUSY AD-DING THE GOALS
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.”
