Reach strike voted Goal of the Month

19 January 2018

For the second successive month, Owls midfielder Adam Reach has won the Sky Bet Championship Goal of the Month award.

The Wednesday ace received 53% of the public vote for his stunning strike on Boxing Day against Nottingham Forest at The City Ground.

A Ross Wallace corner was cleared invitingly to Reach 25 yards out and the wideman unleashed an unstoppable half volley just five minutes into the game.

Lead Sky Bet EFL Goal of the Month judge and Sky Sports Pundit Don Goodman said:

“It’s safe to say that Adam Reach is having one of his most consistent seasons to date and the confidence he’s exuding is allowing him to take on shots from range.

“He followed up last month’s wonder-strike against Aston Villa with an arguably even better one this month.”

Reach added: “It feels just as good as the first time. It’s always good to win a personal award and just like the previous one it came in a win for the team which is always nice.

“They were both different goals with different feet but this one is probably more special to me because it was with my right foot and they don’t come along too often.

“I might go a couple of seasons without hitting another one like that and I’ve managed to do two in two months."
