Sheffield Wednesday winger Adam Reach has admitted this international break is a welcome one for him and his teammates.

The 26-year-old has been a regular for the Owls so far this season and is enjoying a break from the action.

His side have played 38 games and are currently just two points off the Play-Offs. Steve Bruce, who took over the South Yorkshire side in February, has made an instant impact and has got their fans dreaming of the top six.

Reach has said that this international break does allow players to rest up and prepare for the remaining eight games of the season.

The former Middlesbrough winger has told the Sheffield Star: “We will enjoy the rest now because it has been the same core of 13-14 players who have played a lot of games. We need to get the rest in, enjoy some time with family and friends and get back to an exciting run in.”

“I think it is nice to play game after game when you are winning but for me personally I have played a lot of games and it is the time of the season when you need to be fresh in your body and mentally too – you need to be at it.”

I think the rest will do me good and do everyone well and give everyone a new lease of life, give us more energy going into the end of the season.”
