Leeds United fans have taken to social media to demand that Felix Wiedwald is axed and young goalkeeper Bailey Peacock-Farrell is brought in to replace him for the clash against Wolverhampton Wanderers.

The German shot stopper had a shocker against Middlesbrough on Friday night, putting in an unconvincing performance during the 3-0 defeat, including a poor attempt to stop Patrick Bamford’s second goal on the way to his hat trick at the Riverside Stadium.

After his disappointing display, the supporters were quick to urge that the 27-year-old, who was a summer signing from Werder Bremen, was dropped from the first team, and with fellow senior stopper Andy Lonergan out injured, turned to Twitter to name 21-year-old Peacock-Farrell as their preferred replacement.

Here, Football Insider has rounded up a selection of the supporters’ tweets:

The youngster has just one senior appearance to his name since breaking through the youth system at Elland Road, coming in a 1-1 draw against QPR in the 2015/16 season.

This campaign has seen him warm the bench on seven occasions, including Friday’s defeat to Boro, while he also made a short-term move on loan to National League side York City, where he turned out four times before returning.

Meanwhile Wiedwald has made 29 appearances across all competitions, 27 of those coming in the Championship, and has kept 12 clean sheets, and it awaits to be seen whether he will keep his place when Leeds play host to Wolves next Wednesday.
