Sheffield Wednesday picked up their third Championship win in a row on Saturday with a 2-1 win away at Reading, and it was attacking midfielder Adam Reach who took most of the plaudits from Wednesday fans on Twitter.
Reach opened the scoring just 12 minutes into the game when he swept home Matt Penney’s square pass and Lucas Joao doubled the Owls advantage just after half time with a low long-range strike. Liam Moore pulled a goal back for the Royals just after the hour mark but Wednesday saw the game out to win 2-1 for the third league game in a row.

Reach came through the youth system at Middlesbrough and spent four stints out on loan before moving to Sheffield Wednesday in the summer of 2016.
The 25-year-old was a former England U20 international and seems to be a perfect fit for Jos Luhukay’s side. Check out some of the best tweets from Wednesday fans below.

Reach’s goal today is so underrated, build up to it and the finish were brilliant #swfc

Tempo that #swfc played with in first 20 of both halves was terrific but we made it harder for ourselves than it needed to be by giving the ball away too often. Worryingly vulnerable at set pieces still – great start but lots to work on. Pelupessy MOM allowed Bannan/Reach to play
