Adkins happy to welcome Pochettino

Reading manager Nigel Adkins talks to Football Focus reporter Mark Clemmit as he prepares to face former team Southampton for the first time since leaving the club.

Adkins's dismissal on 18 January came despite his having led the club to successive promotions and with the Saints three points clear of the relegation zone, but he insists his replacement Mauricio Pochettino will be welcomed into his office after the game as any other manager would.

You can see the full interview with Adkins on Football Focus on BBC One and here on the BBC Sport website at 12:15 BST on Saturday.
