Pulis full of praise for Reach

28 December 2020

Barring the final eight minutes of our Boxing Day clash with Blackburn Rovers, Adam Reach has played every minute of Tony Pulis’ ten games in charge of the Owls.

The 27-year-old is a mainstay in the starting line-up and his direct attacking style, full of running has impressed Pulis.

His goal at Ewood Park two days ago was trademark Reach – long range, power and perfectly placed.

In terms of ability to strike a ball so clean, with accuracy, Reach is right up there in the Championship.

As Wednesday face Middlesbrough on Tuesday night at Hillsborough, Pulis is hoping to have the former Boro man available for action.

Reach was withdrawn as a precaution after feeling a tightness in his hamstring late in the game against Rovers and will be assessed before the Boro clash.

“He has been a top player for me since I came to the football club,” Pulis said.

“I have been really pleased with his attitude and commitment to the team and he has got a wand of a left foot. It was a great finish.

“He was disappointed he didn't score in the second half. He tried to cut the ball past the keeper instead of bending it past him like he did in the first half.

“He has been full of energy, full of running. His hamstring was a little tight but hopefully he will be fine because he would be a big miss.

“But the whole group is a very hard-working group of players and they give everything they have got.”
