Bailey Peacock-Farrell is Leeds United's number three goalkeeper, and certainly one for the future at Elland Road.

When the transfer window finished this summer, many Leeds fans would have surely stated that Bailey Peacock-Farrell is the Whites' third choice goalkeeper behind Felix Wiedwald and Andy Lonergan, with the potential to push the latter for the first understudy role at Elland Road.

Peacock-Farrell clearly has a huge amount of potential, and the Leeds hierarchy will surely be looking at him as a potential number one for the future - but perhaps one of his teammates' latest displays for the under-23 side hints that the 20-year-old cannot afford to become complacent about that future.

Will Huffer put in a stunning display in Leeds' 1-0 defeat to their Charlton Athletic counterparts earlier this week, making a couple of brilliant saves to keep the score down.

The England youth international has impressed during his time at Thorp Arch, and perhaps it may not be out of the question that his latest performance may bring him onto Thomas Christiansen's radar, if he is not already.

It is obviously too soon for Huffer to push for a first-team spot - especially with the quality situated in front of him in the queue - but Christiansen should perhaps keep an eye on the teenager's development over the coming months.

And if he continues to impress for the under-23s then perhaps he may establish himself as a genuine rival for Peacock-Farrell by the time the latter is competing for the number one jersey if his development goes as well as many expect it to.
