Peacock-Farrell made a string of good saves in the game last night, including a vital one in injury time to keep the score at 0-0.
Football Insider verdict:
It’s been quite a month for young Peacock-Farrell. He’s now the first-choice goalkeeper at Leeds after being given the nod over Felix Wiedwald, and with Andy Lonergan out injured. He’s now got the time to make the position his own for next season. After impressing between the sticks at Leeds, with good performances against sides like Wolves, he has been given the international nod and kept his first clean sheet. heady times indeed, and if Peacock-Farrell can keep his feet on the ground he could be set for a meteoric rise to success.
