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

Adkins rues 'shocking' goals

Nigel Adkins made it clear he wasn't impressed with his side's defending in the 2-1 loss to Huddersfield yesterday.

The Royals lost their first game of the season, as two first half goals from Jacob Butterfield and Harry Bunn sealed a win for the Terriers. The defending for both goals was very questionable and a consolation Simon Cox goal did not spark a recovery for us.

Speaking to the Official Reading FC website, Adkins said after the game: 'We`re not happy losing the game. And the two goals we conceded in the first period of the game were shocking. We gave ourselves an uphill task with the goals we gifted them.'

'Although we huffed and puffed a little bit, it wasn`t enough. We were a little bit better in the second half. We`ve got to move the ball quicker, we`ve got to find the spaces quicker and we`ve got to create more opportunities, be more of a threat.'


Honest assessment from the gaffer, who rightly points out our tempo wasn't quick enough, which ultimately made it easy for Huddersfield to press and defend. It's good to see no sugar-coating from Adkins, who is clearly very disappointed with the result and the performance.
