Sheffield Wednesday interim manager Lee Bullen has been full of praise for Adam Reach, as reported by The Star.
Speaking about Reach, Bullen said: “Adam is so, so effective in the jobs he does because he does both attacking and the defensive roles brilliantly for the team.
“He works so hard. The amount of miles he covers during the 90 minutes is fantastic. He is so highly appreciated by his teammates.
“It is such a bonus to have Adam in the squad because he is so adaptable. He can produce fantastic performances in various positions.”
Reach has already played as a right-winger and centre-midfielder this season, lasting the full 90 minutes and helping his team to victory against Reading and Barnsley, as per WhoScored.
He has played in a plethora of other roles during his three years at Hillsborough, including left-back, left-wing-back and in the number 10 role.
The 26-year-old’s adaptability has also been highlighted by his performances in the aforementioned victories.
Operating on the right-wing against Reading, Reach completed both of the dribbles he attempted, while his directness during the game meant he only had a pass success rate of 72%.
Playing in a midfield three against Barnsley, he made one tackle and one interception, as well as completing two of his three attempted dribbles, making three key passes and maintaining a pass success rate of 89%.
Reach is an important player for Sheffield Wednesday and Bullen is right to sing his praises.
Having somebody who is able to play well in multiple positions is very useful for any manager and that is exactly what Reach does.
He isn’t necessarily the type of player who will steal all the headlines every week, but he will be one of the first names on the team sheet, as signified by the fact he started 42 Championship games last season.
