Video: Jed Steer’s exploits saved the day for Aston Villa

Aston Villa Highlights: Aston Villa goalkeeper Jed Steer turned hero as he made crucial saves in the penalty shootout against West Brom.

With the aggregate lead 2-1, Villa stepped into the second-leg of the Championship Playoffs semi-final.

But the Baggies soon found the goal inside the first half, thereby, levelling the aggregate score 2-2.

The tense-clash went to a penalty shootout and the Lions emerged the winners, thanks to the heroics of Steer.

Tammy Abraham scored the winning penalty, thereby, ensuring the Lions a place in the finals at Wembley.

Steer, 26, seems to be having a great time since his return from a loan spell at Charlton Athletic.

However, the English shot-stopper got his place following the injury of Croatian Lovre Kalinic and Orje Nyland.

Due to his string of wonderful performances, Steer became Dean Smith’s first choice keeper.

A Norwich City youth product, Steer signed for the Lions in 2013 and was subsequently loaned to various clubs over the course.

Furthermore,  the Villains have extended his contract until the end of next season.

Smith’s men are due to face Leeds United or Derby County in the Playoffs final, which is to be played later this month.
