So, how did Bailey Peacock-Farrell do?

So Felix Wiedwald was dropped, not because Peacock-Farrell has been brilliant or anything like that, but it seems that Paul Heckingbottom didn’t really have a choice with how dreadful Wiedwald has been playing.

And you know, he did alright. Yeah, he probably should have either come all the way out and took on Benik Afobe or he should have stayed on his line, for the third goal, but he made a couple of really nice saves in the first half and there wasn’t a thing he could have done about the other two goals, especially because of the piss-poor defending in front of him.

So will he get the start at Reading FC on Saturday? Probably. He is slotted in to be the starter next year? Let’s see how he does the rest of the season, okay?

On to the links.
