Sheffield Wednesday caretaker boss Lee Bullen has heaped praise on Adam Reach for his contribution to the team so far this season.
The 26-year-old has featured for the Owls in both of their opening matches in the Championship this season, but has been used in two different positions.
Reach was deployed on the right hand side of a front three for the 3-1 win over Reading at the Madejski Stadium on the opening day of the season.
The player was moved into central midfield for the victory 2-0 over Barnsley at Hillsborough at the weekend, after Barry Bannan suffered a calf injury in training.
Sheffield Wednesday caretaker boss Bullen has heaped praise on Reach for the way he has performed so far this season and believes his versatility makes him a very useful player to have in his squad.
“Adam is so, so effective in the jobs he does because he does both attacking and the defensive roles brilliantly for the team,” Bullen told the Sheffield Star.
“It is such a bonus to have Adam in the squad because he is so adaptable. He can produce fantastic performances in various positions.
“He has a big affect on the team and, for any coach, it is absolutely brilliant to have players like that.”
Reach was an important player for Sheffield Wednesday in the Championship last season, scoring nine goals and providing seven assists in 46 appearances in all competitions.
Reach has been an important player for Sheffield Wednesday over the past few seasons and has been deployed in a number of different positions since his move to Hillsborough three years ago.
He is a very good footballer and does the simply things really will. His ability and willingness to play in a variety of different positions makes him a very useful option for any manager to have in his squad.
I’m expecting him to play another important role for Sheffield Wednesday in the Championship this season.
