Nigel Adkins: Remains focused on Reading

Adkins' odds have recently been slashed to become the new man at the helm at the Barclays Premier League club, who parted company with Steve Clarke in December.

But the 48-year-old insists he is totally focused on getting Reading's faltering Sky Bet Championship promotion challenge back on track.

He told BBC Radio Berkshire: "A chancer puts on £25 and the bookie takes the odds all the way down.

"All my focus and energies are on trying to do what's right at Reading Football Club.

"There's a lot going on behind the scenes to get the future right, and obviously we're in the transfer window now, indicating there's a lot going on because we've got to get our league campaign back on track."

The Royals have won only one of their last six league games and slipped to ninth in the Championship table.

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
