Norwich striker Jackson hails Steer form for Cup win

Norwich City striker Simeon Jackson hailed the performance of goalkeeper Jed Steer after their FA Cup win over West Bromwich Albion.

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.

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

"He was one of the reasons we got the result. I see him every day in training and he is as good as he showed today.

"When I was 19, I was a bag of nerves when I came on to the pitch but he came out oozing confidence.

"You have to be a strong character being a goalkeeper. He is quite quiet but an outstanding keeper and has done his chances no harm."
