The Northern Irish goalkeeper has already played eight times for the club, keeping four clean sheets.

However, Peacock-Farrell, 26, had a moment to forget in his latest appearance.

In a Superliga clash against Brondby, the stopper slipped as he went to clear a back pass.

As he went to try again the ball bounced off the post toward attacker Mathias Kvistgaarden who had an open goal.

Peacock-Farrall then hauled down the striker and before the official Mikkel Redder could get the red card out he was on his way off the pitch and removed his gloves.

Fans could not help but poke fun at the keeper’s misfortune with some comparing the effort to a rugby tackle.

One fan joked: “Bring him back to Leeds….. Rhinos.”

A second Tweeted: “Great tackle and legal under the new Rugby Football Union tackle laws as well!”


A third commented: “Northern Ireland’s no.1 right there…….”

A fourth wrote: “I remember when they said he was Nick Pope’s heir at Burnley.”

A fifth said: “Oh dear .”

A sixth added: “Another one for the blooper reel.”

Daniel Wass made matters worse for the Clarets man as he converted the resulting penalty to give the visitors the lead in the 25th minute.

Brondby continued to take advantage of the extra man as they ran out 3-0 winners.
