Leeds United boss Neil Warnock insists that Lee Peltier is the best left back at the club despite another shocking performance.
The club captain was once again all at sea on the left hand side of the Leeds defence as they went down to a 2-0 defeat at Barnsley on Saturday.
His performance was summed up in the first half when he had a complete air kick at an attempted clearance.
Leeds have Adam Drury and Aidan White, who can also play at left back, but Peltier has been preferred in this position for most of the season, despite being more recognised at right back.
The Leeds fans have continued to vent their frustration at Warnock`s insistence on playing Peltier at left back and Yorkshire Radio reporter Jonny Buchan questioned him after the game, when he asked why he continued to persist with Peltier when there were other options. “Drury was in bed with flu today and I don`t think Aidy White is better than Lee Peltier. I am happy to have Peltier in the side,”the Leeds boss told Buchan.
Peltier arrived from Leicester City in the summer and he has been an almost ever-present, making 28 appearances and playing across the back four, although mostly at left back.
Drury also arrived in the summer from Norwich City. A vastly experienced full-back with over 500 career appearances to his name and he has struggled to gain a regular run in the Leeds side since his arrival.
He has made just 11 appearances for Leeds since his arrival and he has looked a solid and combative in a natural position.
