Bailey Peacock-Farrell wants to be the Leeds starting goalkeeper. And why not?

After making his debut almost two full years ago against Queens Park Rangers, Peacock-Farrell has had somewhat of a mixed time at Leeds. He’s seen three different keepers come into the club and two keepers leave since being given his first start.

So now he’s trying to take this opportunity to be the first-choice keeper at Leeds. And why not? Felix Wiedwald’s career at Leeds is surely over, as he’s been dropped twice because of a number of poor goals that were let in on his watch. Andy Lonergan was brought in to be a veteran backup, and he’s not going to be the starter going forward.

Leeds will likely be in the market for a new keeper this summer. Peacock-Farrell has the opportunity to show he’s ready to be the full-time keeper in the next 10 games, and he should be given the chance.
