A 1-0 win against Reading on Tuesday night pushed Marcelo Bielsa’s Leeds United side back into the Championship top two, hopping above Middlesbrough in the process. 

It was a match in which Bailey Peacock-Farrell made his return to the starting XI after missing the weekend’s clash with Bristol City, saving a late Reading penalty to secure a 1-0 win.

Peacock-Farrell was selected as the club’s first choice goalkeeper at the start of the season despite securing the signing of Chelsea’s Jamal Blackman on loan.

The Northern Ireland international has played in 18 of the club’s 19 league games so far this season and will be hoping to gain some long-term form.

He had been the subject of some criticism in recent weeks for some sloppy performances, specifically suring the 4-1 defeat by West Brom, but on Thursday Bielsa praised him in a rather bizarre way.
