Sheffield Wednesday travel to Stamford Bridge this Sunday to face Chelsea in the FA Cup in what will probably be their hardest game so far this season.
The Blues sit in fourth place in the Premier League this season, and will go into the game as clear favourites, regardless of whether they field a weakened team or not.
The Owls will need to bring their A-game to get anything out of this fixture, which means that they will need to feature all of their star names. One player that will certainly be at the forefront of attention is 25-year-old Adam Reach.
The midfielder has been one of the shining lights for The Owls this season in what has been a troubling campaign for them. His brilliant performances would have surely attracted attention from a number of clubs around England, who will hope to take advantage of Wednesday’s poor position in the Championship.
Therefore, The Owls face a tricky prospect this Sunday, as Reach’s performance will attract a lot of interest from top-flight clubs to see whether he can handle himself against high-level opposition. If he comes from the game at Stamford Bridge covered in glory, it would only ramp up the interest in him.
However, should they not play him, it makes victory that much harder, as well as running the risk of alienating the player.
This will be a tough decision for Wednesday this week, as they cannot afford to lose Reach at this stage of the season. Any hopes of promotion are heavily dependent on him still being at the club.
