The Leeds United left-back will spend the rest of the season at Scunthorpe United.
Scunthorpe United fans are giving their verdicts on Tom Pearce's debut on loan from Leeds United.
The Leeds left-back moved to Scunthorpe on loan at the end of last month, but spent the first game of his Irons spell, a 2-0 defeat against Barnsley last weekend, sat on the bench.
He was brought into the starting line-up on Saturday, however, and subsequently helped his temporary employers to a 2-0 win against Accrington Stanley.
But what did those of a Scunthorpe persuasion make of Pearce's performance?
This is what they're saying on Twitter and Instagram...
Can see a good player hidden underneath Tom Pearce's nerves, can't wait to see him develop!— Jamie ❤️ (@jamieson09IRON) February 9, 2019
Not a bad debut— David C Scott (@davidchscott) February 9, 2019
He’ll get better next week too. His free kicks weren’t getting past the first man, but that’s nit picking.— David C Scott (@davidchscott) February 9, 2019
Well played mate. You didn’t have a lot of support on the left-hand side, but the more the game went on you grew in confidence. Within the next five games you will be a key player for us - you’ve got a wand of a left foot. #UTI— Ross William Gibson (@RossGibson1992) February 9, 2019
Well said Ross. Tom you were fine, new club new team mates. You will do just fine.— Paul Woodham (@thumpermaxie) February 9, 2019
@evansmith2006 for his first game he looked very good to be fair, you'd have thought he'd played with us for a while.
Pearce broke into Leeds' first-team plans towards the end of Paul Heckingbottom's spell as manager, and his displays are said to have attracted interest from Premier League clubs including Everton [The Sun].
But the 20-year-old has struggled for opportunities on Heckingbottom's successor, Marcelo Bielsa, who made another left-back, Barry Douglas, one of his marquee summer signings.
The Liverpudlian still has three-and-a-half years left on his contract at Leeds.
What does the future hold for Pearce at Elland Road?
