Bailey Peacock-Farrell was offered the chance to return to Sheffield Wednesday this summer. Yesterday, he suffered total embarrassment with a moment that he’ll be keen to forget.
It was a big game yesterday for AGF. However, thanks to Peacock-Farrell, the occasion wilted, with the goalkeeper sent off for a comical act after just 23 minutes.
The Danish club currently sit fifth in the league table. Now, Peacock-Farrell will lose his place as he begins a suspension for his ridiculous moment of madness.
After a routine backpass from a teammate in the 23rd minute, the man who spent the 2021/22 campaign at Wednesday slipped as he went to steady himself.
Mathias Kvistgaarden nipped in front of him and after claiming possession of the ball, he was rugby tackled to the floor by the Northern Ireland number one before he could tap home.

It proved a comfortable victory for Brondby following this incident. Daniel Wass, Ohi Omoijuanfo and Nicolai Vallys ensured it was easy pickings for the visitors.
Wednesday target Peacock-Farrell endured moment of madness
The fan-favourite stopper was wanted by the club early in the summer. Shortly after promotion, it became quite clear that another goalkeeper would be sought, with David Stockdale moving on.
Devis Vasquez is the man who has been added to the ranks. He is in competition with Cameron Dawson for a place in the team, and the AC Milan loanee is doing okay.
The 26-year-old is only on loan with AGF. He will return to Burnley during the summer unless the Danish outfit decide to try and sign him permanently.
Peacock-Farrell made 47 appearances for Wednesday in all competitions. He managed to avoid being sent off during his time at Hillsborough and he will be keen to forget this incident.
