Leeds United fans have taken to Twitter to call on Paul Heckingbottom to start rookie Bailey Peacock-Farrell in goal against Wolves on Wednesday night.

United host the runaway Championship leaders at Elland Road as they aim to bounce back from a wretched run, including last Friday’s 3-0 defeat at Middlesbrough.

One of the main talking points in the aftermath of the Riverside setback was the performance of goalkeeper Felix Wiedwald.

The former Werder Bremen man, 27, has made a number of high profile errors this season and was panned by Leeds fans for what they deemed was another inadequate performance.

Ex-Wolves man Andy Lonergan is the number two at Elland Road but he did not convinced when he was given an opportunity in the autumn.

United fans on social media have urged manager Heckingbottom to instead turn to academy product Peacock-Farrell, 21, who has made only one first-team appearance for the club and spent a month of the season on loan at non-league outfit York City.

Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:
