The one player who will benefit from frustrating Leeds United blow

Published

Bailey Peacock-Farrell has two weeks to think ahead to the meeting with Millwall, knowing that it could be his chance to reassert himself as the club’s number one goalkeeper for the rest of the season.

The 22-year-old will get his chance between the sticks once more after the dismissal of Kiko Casilla this past weekend.

Leeds’ January addition rushed out of his goal and wiped out Billy Sharp with referee Dave Cootes brandishing the veteran stopper a straight red card.

And this is the chance for Peacock-Farrell to put the issues of inconsistent performances behind him and take this latest opportunity with both hands.

Having made 27 appearances this term, the stopper has not featured since the 2-1 defeat to Stoke City at the bet365 Stadium back in the middle of January.

Having had time on the bench to see how his teammate and rival for his position has got on, he has hopefully been able to learn and improve while taking a step back.

Something that is needed in the early stage of a player’s career, and it could well have been beneficial for the 22-year-old.

There is no doubt that Peacock-Farrell would have had a wry smile in the aftermath of the challenge, as he knows he will get three games to make him undroppable for the rest of the year.

It is in the hands of the goalkeeper, literally, to perform to his best and banish the memories of the mediocre performances that he churned out earlier in the campaign.

A vital time for Leeds and one equally so for Peacock-Farrell as he looks to restore faith in his ability from the fans and Bielsa himself.
