Nottingham Forest goalkeeper Brice Samba produced another impressive display at the City Ground.
A number of Nottingham Forest fans have taken to Twitter to comment on Brice Samba‘s impressive performance during their 1-0 win against Barnsley on Saturday, with several suggesting that the 25-year-old is the best goalkeeper in the Championship.
Lamouchi’s men continued their recent unbeaten run, with their only defeat so far coming against West Bromwich Albion on the opening day. This was the first time that the Reds have secured back-to-back wins in the league this season.
The Reds came into the match as favourites given that Barnsley hadn’t won a game since the opening day of the season. However, the away side did cause the Reds problems and were unlucky not to find the back of the net themselves.
This result saw the Reds move into the play-off places and will give them a huge amount of confidence.
Ben Watson scored the winning goal shortly after half-time to secure all three points. In truth, that was one of the only opportunities the Reds created in the second half.
One of the players who played a key role in ensuring the Reds came away with a valuable three points was Brice Samba, with the 25-year-old producing a brilliant display.
Samba made a number of vital saves throughout the match. One of his best saves came when he denied former Forest left-back Daniel Pinillos by making a smart stop at his near post.
And plenty of Nottingham Forest fans have praised the goalkeeper. There were some eyebrows raised when the Reds decided to sign another goalkeeper, but he has since proved he is worth the money.
Here is what some of the Nottingham Forest fans were saying about Samba’s display…
Brice Samba needs his own chant. What a bloke #nffc

Also got to give credit to Lamouchi for going out and getting a keeper of Samba’s quality having so many at the club already, even after signing Man City’s number 2 on loan. Master stroke. #nffc

Was also against signing as many keepers as we did but Samba looks outstanding. You could argue he won us the game with his saves. #NFFC
