Talent of Steer clear - Jackson

Published Add your comment

Goalscorer Simeon Jackson hailed the performance and nerves of steel shown by debutant goalkeeper Jed Steer in Norwich's 2-1 FA Cup fourth-round triumph over West Brom.

Substitute Jackson scored an 85th-minute winner at the Hawthorns after Albion striker Marc-Antoine Fortune had cancelled out Grant Holt's opening goal. But the star for the Canaries was 19-year-old Steer who pulled off a string of fine saves including two from Shane Long and Joe Mattock in the dying seconds to deny the Baggies a replay.

"Jed's debut was unreal. I watched him from the bench during the first half and he was outstanding from start to finish," said Jackson.
