Neil Redfearn offers his opinion on Leeds United's teenage debutant Bailey Peacock-Farrell

Leeds United East Stand

Leeds United's Bailey Peacock-Farrell made his debut against QPR on Tuesday.

Former Leeds United boss Neil Redfearn told BBC Radio Leeds on Tuesday night that he thinks goalkeeper Bailey Peacock-Farrell has the attitude to be successful.

After Leeds' first-choice goalkeeper Marco Silvestri was sent off against Rotherham United on Saturday afternoon, manager Steve Evans was forced to start teenager Peacock-Farrell for the home game against Queens Park Rangers, with veteran Ross Turnbull out injured.

Peacock-Farrell made his senior debut for Leeds against QPR, and looked to be on the verge of keeping a clean sheet before Giuseppe Bellusci committed a foul on Sebastian Polter inside the penalty area, and Tjaronn Chery fired high into the net.

Still, Peacock-Farrell, who has been playing for Leeds' Under-21 side this season, earned praise for his performance, as he turned in a solid debut display.

After the game, former Leeds boss Neil Redfearn was asked by BBC Radio Leeds for his thoughts on Peacock-Farrell, having worked with the shot stopper at Elland Road.

Redfearn, who worked extensively with the young players at Leeds, spoke about Peacock-Farrell's move from Middlesbrough, and praised his attitude and level-headedness, suggesting he has everything to become a real success.

Redfearn also suggested that the emergence of another young player is great news for Leeds, given that players like Lewie Coyle, Charlie Taylor, Lewis Cook and Alex Mowatt are already in the first team setup.

"Bailey came from Middlesbrough, he was released before he got to the scholarship stage," said Redfearn. "They had a lot of goalkeepers up for scholarship, and Bailey was better than what we had at the time. The thing about Bailey is that he's got this real attitude to want to go and do well and be successful. He's done his scholarship, he's come through that, he's learnt the game well, he's got a real level-headedness about himself, and it's great news for Leeds United," he added.
