Adkins eager for top-flight return

Reading boss Nigel Adkins says he and his players know what is required to win promotion from the Championship next season.

Reading lost their final match in the Premier League 4-2 away at West Ham, for whom Kevin Nolan hit a hat-trick, with Ricardo Vaz Te scoring the Hammers' other goal.

Garath McCleary and Adam Le Fondre netted for Reading but Adkins' side finished the season in 19th place on 28 points, just one place and three points better off than bottom club QPR.
