Despite conceding three goals, young Leeds United goalkeeper Bailey Peacock-Farrell received glowing praise from the fans for his performance against Wolverhampton Wanderers.

The 21-year-old was called into the first team with regular number one Felix Wiedwald coming in for criticism for his recent performances and number two Andy Lonergan injured.

Many fans had called for Peacock-Farrell to be given an opportunity in goal having not featured since deputising for a suspended Marco Silvestri against Queens Park Rangers in April 2016.

Peacock-Farrell was at fault for the third goal but his first half performance kept Leeds in the game as he made a string of good saves to deny the Wolves attack and fans took to social media to praise the youngster.

Peacock-Farrell should now retain his place in the Leeds side when they travel to Reading on Saturday as they look for just a second win of 2018.
