Leeds suffered a 3-0 defeat to Wolves on Wednesday evening.
Paul Heckingbottom made the bold decision to start Bailey Peacock-Farrell in goal for Leeds United but the Northern Irish goalkeeper could do nothing to prevent Wolves from winning 3-0 - and fans applauded the youngster's efforts on Twitter.
The 21-year-old was picked ahead of German goalkeeper Felix Wiedwald who has been heavily scrutinised of late due to his poor form of late that has seen him make a string of mistakes - coinciding with Leeds' run of bad results.
With Andy Lonergan injured, Peacock-Farrell was chosen to start between the sticks against the league leaders as Heckingbottom decided to axe former Werder Bremen stopper Wiedwald.

In what was only his second start for the Yorkshire giants, Peacock-Farrell impressed as he kept Wolves at bay with Leeds unable to cope with the Midlands club's attacking prowess.
He was a rare positive in another disappointing result under the guidance of Heckingbottom, which has seen the former Barnsley boss pick up just one win in six games as Leeds manager.
But Leeds fans were full of praise for Peacock-Farrell, who could now start against Reading at the Madjeski Stadium on Saturday afternoon after impressing with a string of top-draw saves.
Unlucky boys on the loss last night. Could've been better but the introduction of Bailey Peacock-Farrell I thought he did well to only concede 3 goals.— LetsTalkLeedsUnitedFC (@LetsLeeds) March 8, 2018
Leeds lost but I am happy Bailey Peacock Farrell is getting rave reviews. Our Academy has forever remained a shining light despite all the turmoil Leeds has faced over the years— El-Hadary (@RaphaelOmalla) March 8, 2018
more confident looking in goal..— Paul Gilbey (@PaulGilbey) March 8, 2018
Felix hope you took some notes down for training session. As we have a new number 1 keeper now in Peacock Farrell
I’d play Bailey Peacock-Farrell every game until the end of the season now. He deserves to have his shot at number 1.— Liam (@LiamStorer_) March 8, 2018
Only positive from tonight, peacock-Farrell looked average, at least that’s better than completely and utterly atrocious— Tom (@Tom24103424) March 7, 2018
Congrats to Peacock Farrell on a great performance tonight. Hopefully the first of many for him at Leeds United. Thought Forshaw and Dallas did OK tonight too. #lufc— Gareth Jones (@garethjones25) March 7, 2018
