Reading boss Nigel Adkins last night tipped Albion for the play-offs, but felt that referee Fred Graham's decision to dismiss Seagulls skipper Gordon Greer was the right one.

Greer was sent off for a second booking in yesterday's 1-1 draw at the Amex, and Albion fans were aggrieved by the decision - but Adkins felt Graham was right with both cautions.

He said, "I don't think there is any question about it. It was a clear foul and a clear booking, without a shadow of a doubt. 

"I am surprised to have even been asked the question. I don't think anyone can argue about it, I think the referee has got in bang on.

Adkins feels Albion have what it takes to make the play-offs, but says there are still plenty of twists and turns in the Championship promotion race.

"It's going to go all the way. It's about keeping calm, you have to have a group of players who are working hard. 

"Brighton can make the play-offs, without a shadow of a doubt. They are an excellent side and they play football in the right manner as far as I am concerned. 

"For us it's disappointing not get all three points, but one point is an excellent one, because it is a very difficult place to come to and Brighton play very good football."
