Nottingham Forest goalkeeper Brice Samba is slowly edging back to his best form under Chris Hughton and was rewarded for his efforts on Saturday with a place in the Who Scored Team of the Week.
The goalkeeper came in for some criticism towards the end of last season with his form erratic, to say the least.
Samba missed the last two games of the season through injury but in large he has looked good during 2020/21.
Signed for £1.8 million from Caen in the summer of 2019, Samba was superb during the first half of 2019/20.
He quickly ousted Arijanet Muric and quickly established himself as the number one stopper at the City Ground.
On Saturday he kept his second clean sheet of the campaign, making five saves to keep Wycombe at bay.
Samba’s goalkeeping is often unorthodox but that doesn’t mean he isn’t a capable goalkeeper.
The 26-year-old is still at a nice age to continue improving and there is more to come from Samba.
Following his display at the weekend, supporters have been reacting on Twitter to the performance of the club’s goalkeeper.
Here is what they are saying about the Congolese performer…

It shouldn't be taken for granted how good Brice Samba is at this level.— Nick (@NickBrookz) November 7, 2020
Top GK. Makes every save look so easy through his positioning & dominates his box. Coming to the very edge of his box in 88th min & punching clear. Basically won us all 3 points in the week also. #nffc
