Aston Villa fans on Twitter are gutted for Jed Steer after reports suggested that he is set to miss two months of action following his injury against Wolves over the weekend.

The Daily Mail have claimed that goalkeeper Steer is facing two months on the sidelines after he suffered a calf injury five minutes into Villa’s defeat at Wolves.

Last season, Steer played a big part in Villa earning promotion to the Premier League, but in the summer, Dean Smith opted to replace him with England international Tom Heaton.

But on Sunday, Steer replaced his more experienced counterpart in the team because he had picked up a knock in training. Steer would then find himself hobbling off five minutes into the match against Wolves, with Orjan Nyland being his replacement.

Now he is set for some time in the treatment room as Villa fans are gutted for Steer, who has been number one during their League Cup games this season.

As things stand, Nyland, who was the third choice at the start of the season, will be number one for Newcastle’s visit after the international break.

But Villa will be hopeful that Heaton’s knock isn’t too serious and that he can take the gloves when Steve Bruce’s returns to his former club.

The positive for Villa is that Steer’s injury isn’t as serious as first feared, plus all the players who have knocks now have time to recover and get back to their best during these two weeks.
