Adkins backs ref - but admits Albion (and Yeovil) made life tough
Reading boss Nigel Adkins reckons Fred Graham was right to send off Albion’s captain yesterday.
And he reckons his team’s array of exciting players can lead to opponents picking up red and yellow cards.
Gordon Greer was dismissed for two bookable offences in the 1-1 draw at the Amex.
Reading also drew 1-1 last week at home to a Yeovil side reduced to eight men.
Adkins reckons opponents struggle to cope with his team but admitted their failure to win the last two games was a frustration.
He said: “We have got exciting players at our football club who take people on and go past them.
“There could have been more players sent off last week when you analyse the game – which you don’t want to see.
“Supporters want to see 11 v 11 on a pitch.
“Sometimes it is quite challenging when everybody is in the six-yard box and you have got to break them down.
“Goalkeepers have man-of-the-match performances and pull off worldy saves.
“Last week it was not as if we didn’t create chances.
“But it is frustrating when you have a numerical advantage that you don’t capitalise on it.
“The important thing I suppose in that situation is you don’t lose the game.”
