Adkins bookies' favourite for Reading
2:20pm Thursday 14th March 2013 in Sport
Nigel Adkins has emerged as the bookmakers' latest favourite to take over as manager of Reading.
The Premier League strugglers fired Brian McDermott earlier this week and are now on the hunt for a new boss.
Paolo Di Canio, who recently left Swindon, has been strongly tipped for the job, while Brighton's Gus Poyet and Bradford's Phil Parkinson have also been mentioned.
But Adkins, who was relieved of his duties at Saints in January, is the current bookies' favourite.
