Adkins: 'It's Not Nice Getting Relegated'

Nigel Adkins said Reading needed to “bottle” the feeling of being relegated and use it as a catalyst to start playing “winning football” in the seasons to come, after the 0-0 draw at home to Queens Park Rangers sent his club into the npower Championship (second division) for next season.

"I said to the players in the dressing room that it's not nice getting relegated and I never want to be in that situation again," Adkins told Sky Sports. "We've got to bottle that feeling. We're going to be a Championship football team so what we've got to do is give ourselves an opportunity to get back in the Premier League and learn the lessons quickly from this season.”

When asked if he would have done anything differently since he took over for Brian McDermott in late March, Adkins said: "When you look at it, there's been a good progression. We want to play winning football. Today both teams came out with different ways to win a game of football, but unfortunately it's ended up with a 0-0 scoreline which didn't help anybody.”
