Nigel Adkins has been appointed as new Reading manager to replace Brian McDermott, who was sacked on March 11.
His first match in charge will be away to Arsenal on Saturday before a reunion with his former colleagues on April 6 as Southampton travel to Reading for a potentially decisive bottom-of-the-table clash.
He, himself was removed from his post at St Mary’s Stadium in January despite leading the Saints to consecutive promotions from League One.
