Adam Reach made an honest admission in an interview the Yorkshire Post, conceding that he’s struggled for consistency this season. The 27-year-old has been a regular under Garry Monk this season, making 33 appearances across the board while scoring two goals and making seven assists, but he hasn’t always been at his best.
He told the Yorkshire Post: “My own season’s been similar to the team’s, a little bit topsy-turvy. I’ve had some good moments and some not-so-good moments. Consistency has been a positive of my time at this club but this season let it down a bit. I think I’ve improved in areas and, if I can start each season a slightly better player or person, that’s good.”
Reach joined Sheffield Wednesday in 2016 and has gone on to make 174 appearances in all competitions, scoring 18 goals and making 30 assists. His contract at Hillsborough is up in 2021, but his long-term future may be uncertain unless he improves next season.
Before the campaign was postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Reach spent the last month sidelined with a toe injury – the 27-year-old’s last outing came in Wednesday’s 0-0 draw with Millwall (February 1).
With Jacob Murphy’s loan deal being up in the coming months while Alessio Da Cruz may not be signed permanently after struggling for form and playing time, Wednesday may be short of wingers next season. Reach may not have been at his best in 2019/20, but he’ll be an important player after the summer exodus.
Vital Sheff Wed have also cited Harvey Elliot, Jota and Demarai Gray as potential loan options to bolster the attack, but it remains to be seen who is brought in.
