EFL CHAMPIONSHIP

Adam Reach failed to make an impression against Sheffield United

In the first half of tonight’s game at Bramall Lane, West Bromwich Albion player Adam Reach failed to impress Carl Asaba. A TV analyst for Sheffield United.

In 15 minutes, Reach aimed from a distance and hoped to see it go into the net as it does so frequently from his leg. But it was easy to save by Wes Foderingham in the Sheffield United goal. Reach’s modest performance didn’t impress BBC Radio Sheffield pundit Asaba. Who wasn’t concerned if that was all he did the entire game.

Adam Reach hasnt been good on the shot

If you don’t shoot, you won’t score. Given Reach’s record in scoring screamers in the EFL Championship. West Brom fans won’t be disappointed if he tries his luck from distance.

While at Sheffield Wednesday, he could win his own goal of the season list this year. But we have yet to witness such performances from him in a West Brom shirt.

He should have greater freedom to float into areas and have a go from wherever he is on the pitch in his role under Steve Bruce. And that suits him down to the ground.

With Grady Diangana’s blistering pace alongside him in the attack. West Brom might be in for a successful partnership after they’ve gotten used to one other on the pitch.

Andy Carroll also did an excellent job leading the line, bringing in players like Reach, Diangana, and Karlan Grant, and Bruce will be hoping that this trend continues.

West Brom is without captain Jake Livermore into March. After the club failed to appeal the red card he got in Wednesday night’s 2-0 loss to Sheffield United. After a robust challenge on Conor Hourihane, Livermore received his walking papers shortly before halftime.

In his post-match media briefing, Steve Bruce said the challenge was not deserving of a red card, but Albion later appealed the decision.
