The 21-year-old will make just his second appearance for Leeds after playing in a 1-1 draw with QPR in the Championship two years ago.

Leeds take on league leaders Wolves at Elland Road tonight after a string of poor results has left their play-off hopes in tatters.

Well, Heckingbottom obviously believes he’s good enough to take his chance and Peacock-Farrell must now grasp opportunity – literally, with both hands.
