With the six yard box packed, Barry Bannan pulled the ball back towards the penalty spot, where Adam Reach had peeled away from the back post to connect superbly and sweep into the net with his left foot.

Wednesday weren’t able to hold onto the lead and had to settle for a point at the Liberty Stadium after Andre Ayew had taken advantage of some hestitant Owls defending to fire home an equaliser.

Nevertheless, Reach’s goal still earned plenty of praise for its execution and Doncaster Rovers boss Darren Moore knew exactly who to give the credit to for the strike.

Speaking as a pundit of EFL on Quest, Moore who was assistant to Tony Pulis at West Brom hailed his old boss as ‘one of the best’ that he’s ever worked alongside.

Moore said: “It’s an absolute rubber stamp training ground, executed set play finish which Tony’s renowned for, he’s one of the best I’ve ever worked with. And seeing these coming off, these set-plays set-plays, he’s meticulous with detail and the timing’s perfect.”
