Should Leeds goalkeeper Bailey Peacock-Farrell have been sent off for this challenge on Derby's Duane Holmes?

Bailey Peacock-Farrell was involved in a second-half altercation with Derby's Duane Holmes on Friday night, but should the Leeds goalkeeper have been sent off for his challenge?

Frank Lampard's Rams struggled to gain a foothold in a Sky Bet Championship game in which Leeds were so dominant, with just two attempts on target in the entirety of the 90 minutes at Elland Road.

But just after the hour mark, American midfielder Holmes caught the eye when he flicked the ball over a series of opposing defenders en route to goal, before Peacock-Farrell leapt to pluck the ball from the air before the 24-year-old could advance any further.

In the process of doing so, the stopper appeared to force Holmes away from the ball with his studs, though referee Andy Davies - who was stood just a matter of yards away - felt no foul had been committed.

By this time, the hosts were already two goals to the good, though a sending-off may well have played some part in the final result.
