Sheffield Wednesday suffered a 1-0 defeat to Hull City on Wednesday afternoon and Adam Reach was one of many players criticised by supporters for his performance. The 26-year-old didn’t make much of an impact at Hillsborough and was hauled off early in the second-half as a result.
Reach frequently relinquished possession, failed to find teammates with balls into the box, didn’t beat his opposing marker once in the game and showed little to no creativity. Jacob Murphy replaced him after the hour mark and fans made their feelings felt.
Reach has just been awful this season. Another we should get rid of. #swfc

What’s up with Reach. Shell of a man atm. No where near his capabilities this season. Their goal by Bowen was literally a carbon copy of the chance Reach dribbled wise. He needs a break to get his head right #swfc

Well, after today's match I'm not happy. Our whole team is so spineless and has a lack of ideas, other than Bannan who to be fair, did try. Fox and Dawson are much better than they were. Reach has been abysmal since Swansea at home and needs moving on #swfc #wawaw

Players who can go #7 – Reach. Been crap for a year. Literally just stands about and points. #swfc

Big disappointment over last 3 games Fox doesn’t over lap takes too long to cross Hutch his a CH not a midfielder Harris and Reach poor decision making hoping Monk gets the chance to get the players he wants #swfc

Surely Lee must start in place of Reach. Reach while being at #SWFC at his best has been ok but most of the time he is poor. He doesn’t affect the game at all. Unfortunately we rely on two or three players to make something happen.

Reach to go in this or next window. Probably best for both parties, he’s plateaued #swfc

Against Hull, Reach played for 63 minutes, made 30 touches, completed only 64.7% of his 17 passes, whipped in two crosses without finding a teammate, faield to create a chance, made two tackles, failed to make an interception, failed to register a shot on target and failed to make a successful dribble.
The 26-year-old has made 26 appearances in all competitions this season, scoring and creating six goals. Reach has been a regular under Garry Monk, but he may lose his place in the side against Brighton & Hove Albion (January 4). Murphy made much more of a contribution in half the time Reach had against Hull, so he could start on Saturday.
