Nigel Adkins: Primed for a vital week for Reading

The Royals have slipped out of the play-off places having taken just one point from their last two games following Saturday's 1-1 draw with lowly Yeovil.

They face a trip to promotion-rivals Brighton on Saturday, head to Leeds the following Tuesday and then host third-placed Derby next weekend.

"Now we've got nine or 10 players away on international duty, then it's Brighton away, Leeds away and Derby at home," said Adkins.

"Probably if you look at it the biggest week so far in the context of our season."
