'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Adkins: Our destiny is in our hands

Nigel Adkins was understandably pleased with his side's victory over Middlesbrough, which as he puts, leaves our destiny in our own hands.

The victory at the Madejski Stadium last night means that we are back in the top six, one point ahead of Brighton in seventh. Therefore, with two games to go, it means that victory in those two games means we will be in the race, which Adkins understands and wants to relish.

Speaking to Sky Sports after the game, Adkins said: 'Our destiny is in our own hands. We were excellent, we had passion, we had hunger, we had walking wounded out there again and all credit to them. We started well, got two great goals and played some good football.'

'You saw the togetherness of the team. Middlesbrough are a good side so for me it's an excellent result and it puts us in the play-off positions with two tough games to come. We are still in the race and and everyone knows when you get to the play-offs it's anyone's game.'


As Adkins says, it was a good performance and now means that it is in our hands. It's simple, win our next five games and we are in the Premier League. The likelihood of it being that simple is not very high, but as the gaffer says, the play-offs is 'anyone's game'.
