Leeds fans slate Peacock-Farrell after Saturday’s shocker

Leeds fans slate Peacock-Farrell after Saturday’s shocker - Birmingham

Leeds United hosted Birmingham City yesterday in the Sky Bet Championship and The Whites fell to their first defeat of the season, losing 2-1 to Garry Monk’s side. Ironically, it was the side who were yet to win who beat the side yet to lose, and they were helped by some poor goalkeeping from Bailey Peacock-Farrell in the Leeds goal.

The Northern Ireland international goalkeeper was caught out big time by Che Adams just before ten minutes were on the clock. The young goalkeeper tried to read Adams’ shot and stepped across, anticipating a whipped effort into the far corner. However, in doing this he wrong-footed himself and Adams was left to power home low and into the middle of the goal, making the Leeds number one look pretty silly.

The second goal for Birmingham came just before the half an hour mark when Adams again fired past Peacock-Farrell, despite being off balance and moving away from goal. Both goals will go down to the young goalkeeper and whilst it’s far from ideal for the youngster, it’s all experience that will aid his development. If things don’t improve then Bielsa could well throw in Jamaal Blackman who he signed on loan over summer, but for now it looks like Peacock-Farrell will remain despite his errors.

The fans aren’t quite sure what their young shot-stopper was doing against Birmingham and will be keen to see him bounce back against Sheffield Wednesday on Friday.
