Jed Steer says Huddersfield Town will head to Birmingham City in buoyant mood as they chase a first win under David Wagner.

They will have to topple the Championship’s sixth-placed side if they are to do it at the third attempt at St Andrew’s.

But while Town were left in the relegation zone after Saturday’s 2-0 home defeat by Middlesbrough, the on-loan keeper says there is confidence in the camp.

“Different managers have different tactics and ours are different,” said Steer, who as an Aston Villa player, is likely to get a lively reception from the Birmingham fans.

“You have seen the German national team play the way we are trying to and Bayern Munich and obviously Borussia Dortmund, where the gaffer has come from, and it’s exciting to watch.

“The boys have really taken to it and in the time they have been working with the new head coach.

“Everyone is full of belief and confidence that this is the way we are going to pick up results.

“Football is a beautiful game when you get the ball down and zip it around like we did against Middlesbrough.

“We want to entertain the fans and the fans want to be entertained. That’s what we aim to do.

“In the first half we outplayed Middlesbrough and they will have gone away thinking they’ve done very well to have come away with all three points.

“They had two chances and scored two goals. We need to learn from that and be more clinical in front of goal.

“I know that our strikers are working on that, as are the whole team.

“We aim to kick on from here and show what we are capable of.”

Steer, back for a third month, is set for a 12th Town appearance against Birmingham.

Having decided against extending his stay, Wagner did a U-turn after Joe Murphy picked up an ankle injury.

“The goalkeeping coach (Nick Colgan) gave me a call and asked if I wanted to go back,” explained the 23-year-old.

“There had been a few sniffs from other clubs but I jumped at the chance.”
