Bailey Peacock-Farrell was handed a surprise start for Leeds by manager Paul Heckingbottom against Wolves on Wednesday night.

It was a baptism of fire for the youngster making his second appearance for Leeds and his first for two years, but fans were absolutely delighted with the youngster.

Leeds were 2-0 down by half-time but it could have been so much more if it wasn’t for the 21-year-old, who made a string of fine saves to, if not keep Leeds in it, at least spare their blushes.

The rest of the team were pretty awful and incredibly Peacock-Farrell was the shining light as he played under the spotlight.

In the end it was a 3-0 defeat and yet more pain for Leeds, and Peacock-Farrell made a rare error for the third.

Leeds fans still think he should be kept in the team for the visit to Reading and felt sorry for the youngster after a tough night.

Here are the best reactions from Leeds fans to a display which should keep him between the sticks for the visit to Reading on Saturday:

The result leaves Leeds in 13th place in the Championship and nine points off the play-off spots.

The display of Peacock-Farrell was probably the only consolation for frustrated Leeds fans at Elland Road on Wednesday night.
