Leeds fans on Twitter were in shock with this Peacock-Farrell blunder

Leeds fans have been aware of the issues surrounding their goalkeeping department for a while now, and after making a number of makes over the festive period, Bailey Peacock-Farrell was very lucky not to be caught out when he travelled miles outside of his area to close down and block a shot from David Nugent.

Whilst it came good for Peacock-Farrell, it was a moment that easily could have left the 22-year-old goalkeeper with egg in his face, and it wouldn;t be for the first time this season. Marcelo Bielsa’s side have been able to pull off some incredible comebacks this season, but they wouldn’t have had to be amazing turnarounds had their man between the sticks done his job in the first place.

It seems inevitable that the young Leeds academy man will be dropping to the bench at some point soon as Bielsa continues to scan the transfer market for a new goalkeeper before the end of the month. Peacock-Farrell won’t be shipped out, but he will be dropped to the role of number two after almost a full year of being the Whites’ number one, having been first aff0rded a chance by Paul Heckingbottom last March.

The Whites have a lot of time for Peacock-Farrell but the goalkeeper is starting to worry them with mistakes coming far too often.
