Leeds United fans react to Tom Pearce’s first goal for Scunthorpe United

The left-sided player joined the Iron on loan in January and netted a stunning first goal for the club last night.

Leeds United academy graduate capped his latest performance on loan at Scunthorpe United with a stunning goal.

The 20-year-old lobbed the ball over the Southend United goalkeeper from the left wing position, sparking talk over whether or not he meant it.

Pearce played just twice this season but has now made five appearances for the Iron.

Playing football is paramount for the youngster’s development but he won’t have given up hope on forging a career with Leeds just yet.

He has fallen foul to Marcelo Bielsa’s methods if anything.

Very rarely does the boss change a winning team and that has made life difficult for the defender to break in.

Next season could be different though and an opportunity could arise.

Pearce took to Twitter following his goal last night posting a cheeky message which read:

Naturally, this sparked a reaction from Leeds fans, many of who thought he did actually mean it.

It seems as though he is popular at Elland Road and from the people who reacted on Twitter he seems to have a lot of supporters.

We rounded up the best tweets from Leeds fans following Pearce’s latest post.
