GK- Jed Steer
Although the Jed Steer came to the club on a temporary basis following Joe Murphy’s injury, he has more than filled Alex Smithies’ shoes since joining on loan.
Steer has showed himself to be one of the most talented and well-rounded keepers that Huddersfield has had over the last five years, as he has the ability like Smithies had to pull off a string of spectacular saves as an excellent shot-stopper.
However where the two goalkeepers differ is Jed Steer provides a larger presence in the box and he rarely makes any handling errors even when under insurmountable pressure from corners and free-kicks, he relieves all the pressure with his positive goalkeeping and it gives the defenders in front of him confidence.
Steer is far from perfect, his distribution against teams pressing high can be slow and troublesome and he sometimes makes questionable decisions about when to charge out his goal, and to act as a ‘sweeper keeper’ however as he matures and becomes more knowledgeable about the game, he’ll know when to come out and when to leave it.
If Huddersfield can sign him permanently from Aston Villa then they’ll have an excellent young goalkeeper to build their squad around.
