Adkins has already brought in Royston Drenthe, Danny Williams and Wayne Bridge as the Royals bid to bounce back from last season's relegation.

But Adkins dismissed reports linking him witha move for Stoke striker Cameron Jerome following Saturday's thrilling 3-3 draw with Watford.

"There's going to be lots of speculation, every manager wants to strengthen their group," he said.

"There's two and a bit weeks until the window, we scored three and if we hadn't scored three people would be asking more questions about strikers. We're working hard behind the scenes."

haos reached its ultimate reckoning last weekend with Tony Hibbert looking assured at left back and Osman looking like a cultured ball playing midfielder before busting a gut to get to the back post for a Samuel Eto'o ball. Different chaos but chaos. If Kone scores the winner tonight I fear the world will end.
