READING boss Nigel Adkins was delighted with Glenn Murray's debut and believes the striker is only going to get better. The Crystal Palace hitman scored two goals on his loan debut for the Royals against Fulham on Saturday. The 30-year-old could have had a hat-trick but Adkins decided to take him off with a view to Tuesday night's game against Millwall. Indeed, Murray will be gunning for the Lions as a local rival to the Eagles. "Glenn scored two goals and he's only going to get better," said Adkins. "He's come in, worked really hard and has done really well. He's got all kinds of finishes in the locker and it looked like he'd been playing with (Simon) Cox for years, two intelligent players. "We took him off with 25 minutes to go, he's got to get used to playing football again and getting to that fitness level. "And we've got options as well now. It was a call I had to make (on taking Murray off). "A striker on two goals always wants a hat-trick. But I know he's just joined so I have to be mindful, and it's seven games in 22 days. "I've got to look at the big picture and make the decisions. We lost Pavel (Pogrebnyak) to injury recently because we weren't able to take him off in games. "I'd love Glenn to have got a third goal, but you'll kick yourself if he breaks down. You just take the risk out of it."
