The incredible numbers behind Adam Reach’s goals so far this season

Adam Reach can’t stop scoring stunning goals.

After an incredible volley against Leeds United at Hillsborough last Friday, the 25-year-old followed it with a rocket of a long-range strike from a similar position against West Brom on Wednesday night.

Since the start of last season, nobody has scored more goals from outside the box in the Championship than Reach after he bagged five from open play against Aston Villa, Nottingham Forest, Reading, Leeds and West Brom.

Four of those highlight-reel strikes came from his wand of a left foot, one with his right.

The long-range specialist’s goals have an average distance of an astonishing 28 yards, with the most recent hit against the Baggies his furthest yet at 32.35 yards from goal.

Earlier in September his goal against Reading was the closest of the bunch at 20.38 yards while the volley against Leeds was from 31.52 yards.

The midfielder has already beaten his goal tally from last season just 11 league games into the new campaign and has set himself a target of reaching double figures in 2018/19.
