Leeds United goalkeeper Bailey Peacock-Farrell looks set to be start for the Whites this weekend in their trip to Preston North End.

The 19 year-old is held in high regard at Elland Road and made his senior debut last month in a 1-1 draw at home to Queens Park Rangers and impressed with his performance.

Currently the Whites second choice keeper, ahead of both Ross Turnbull and Eric Grimes, Peacock-Farrell is, according to the Yorkshire Post, in with a great chance of making his second start for Leeds on Saturday.

Formerly a product of Middlesbrough’s academy, the Durham-born stopper was signed for Boro at the age of just ten and stayed with the club for seven years.

After being released in the summer of 2013, Peacock-Farrell joined Leeds as a scholar and signed his first professional contract in 2015.

With the Whites currently having nothing to play as they sit in the middle of the table in 12th, boss Steve Evans could use this match as a chance to blood in some youngsters and see how they perform with little pressure on the result of the game.
