Nigel Adkins: Focus is on Arsenal

The Royals have eight games remaining, the first of which is against Arsenal on Saturday, and that match has been the centre of Adkins' attention since his appointment on Tuesday.

"The important thing is we take it one game at a time without setting a points total," he said. "It's a great challenge and one we are relishing.

"The next game is the most important. I know where people are coming from with Southampton which is the following game and I'm sure there will be a lot of talk about that.

"But I've just been appointed by Reading and it's important we're respectful of that and take it one game at a time.

"We will put all our energy into the Arsenal game and do everything we can to win it."

alcao really needs to shine now. Apparently according to the stats, he scores more when played up front alone. I wonder if Van Gaal will actually apply a formation to get the best out of him though.
