Leeds United goalkeeper Bailey Peacock-Farrell has made the position his own since taking over from Felix Wiedwald in between the sticks.

So much so, that when supporters were asked whether the 21-year-old should be the club’s number one stopper going forward, the response was resoundingly in favour of seeing the newcomer remain as the final line of defence.

After coming through the youth setup, the stopper has already reproduced a number of man of the match displays and hasn’t had an easy time coming into the side at a period when the players have been struggling to meet supporters expectations.

And having picked up just 12 points since Boxing Day, a result of which saw the sacking of Thomas Christiansen, they have continued to go into free fall ever since.

Defensively, the Whites have been all at sea too, which hasn’t made it easy on the young stopper in the eight appearances he has totalled so far.

But he has handled the pressure with aplomb and hasn’t looked an inch out of place amongst some of the most experienced senior pros.

This has meant that the Darlington-born stopper has been an instant hit and supporters want to see him in goal for the Whites next season.

Here is a selection of fan reactions to Peacock-Farrell on Twitter:
