Norwich manager hails the performance of debutant goalkeeper Jed Steer after his side's 2-1 FA Cup win over West Brom.

Norwich City manager Paul lambert has expressed his delight at the performance of debutant goalkeeper Jed Steer during his side's 2-1 FA Cup win over West Bromich Albion.

Steer, 19, was making his first start for his hometown club and his performance led manager Lambert to predict a bright future for the youngster.

"I thought his saves were world-class," said Lambert, "He was terrific and it is only one game but he has great temperament and great enthusiasm for the game, he is really level headed which is most important than anything but his handling was brilliant and his saves were exceptional.

"I have never had any fear about playing any of the younger ones, you won't know until you give someone an opportunity so until then how would you know, but his temperament is great so I knew he could cope with playing behind the defence and I think he has the makings to be a top keeper, and we are fortunate to have three great goalkeepers.

"He is only a kid, but if he keeps his career going and keeps level headed he will have a massive career.

Steer began the season on loan at Yeovil Town, making 12 appearances for the Glovers.
