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.

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.
