Reading has called a press conference this morning when they are expected to announce Nigel Adkins as their manager.
Adkins, who's 48, has been out of work since losing his job with Southampton FC in January. Reading has been without a manager since the sacking of Brian McDermott.
The press conference is at 9.15am - and comes just five days before Reading travel to Arsenal before a home game against Southampton.
