Nigel Adkins calls for Reading persistence

Reading boss Nigel Adkins urges his team to stay persistent following their 3-1 defeat to Blackburn Rovers in the Championship.

Reading boss Nigel Adkins has called on his players to "keep going" following their defeat to Blackburn Rovers on Saturday.

The Royals went down 3-1 at Ewood Park to lose their fourth match out of five in the Championship.

Despite seeing his team slip down to 15th place in the table, Adkins is hopeful that they can turn their form around soon.

"We've got to keep going and keep the belief about ourselves - the grit, passion and perseverance to keep doing what we believe is the right thing," he is quoted as saying by BBC Sport.

Reading are back in Championship action on Tuesday night when they host Rotherham United.
