Bailey Peacock-Farrell had a good outlook on getting past the potential benching and recovering from his bad game against West Bromwich Albion.

Peacock-Farrell said:

Football is up and down. You don’t get too high when you’re up and you don’t get too down when things go against you, otherwise you’ll be mentally done-in.

It’s a test and maybe I’ve answered it. Maybe I haven’t. It doesn’t really matter. It’s just about the team.

There was no real option for me other than to play well. That’s not from the outside noise or from what the manager demands, or from the fans. It’s the demands I put on myself.

I wasn’t pleased with the goal at West Brom but if you look over the course of the season, I’ve done well and the team have done well.

To finish on a high with the defining moment was good. That meant a lot to me and it’s the standard we need to keep.

It sounds like he has the right outlook on how his season has gone and how to approach the rest of the season.
