Aston Villa correspondent Gregg Evans has been reacting to Jed Steer’s injury against Chelsea in the week.
The Lowdown: Steer stretchered off

How would you rate Villa's transfer window?
It's been alright!
He was handed a fifth start against Chelsea in the FA Cup on Wednesday evening, however, the 29-year-old had to be stretched off in the first half after going down off the ball. It appears to be an achilles problem for the goalkeeper, who is set to undergo a scan on the issue.
The Latest: Evans reacts
Evans took to Twitter on Wednesday evening to react to Steer’s injury. He labelled it as a ‘horrible injury’ for the Villa man after he made a promising start to life at Kenilworth Road.
“A horrible injury for Jed Steer who is carried off on a stretcher for Luton Town Such a shame for him as he was doing so well on loan from AVFC.”
The Verdict: Fingers crossed
Steer, who Tammy Abraham labelled as ‘brilliant’, was finally getting some much-needed game time after serving as back up to Emiliano Martinez over the last 18 months.
He helped The Hatters into the Championship playoff places with wins over West Brom, Stoke City and Derby County, so hopefully, the injury isn’t as bad as first feared and he can be back playing before the season is out.
Steer does have previous when it comes to achilles injuries, though, but fingers crossed this latest problem won’t keep him out for too long.
