Southampton worthy winners against Reading - Nigel Adkins

Manager Nigel Adkins says Southampton were "worthy winners" after they beat Reading 1-0 to move out of the bottom three in the Premier League.

Jason Puncheon scored the game's only goal and also had a first-half header ruled out for an earlier foul by Yoshida on Adam Federici, but Adkins believes it was a "perfectly good goal".

Adkins goes on to praise Puncheon for his "excellent" strike, saying the forward has "grasped" his Premier League opportunity with both hands.
