Nottingham Forest stopped the rot of three successive defeats by drawing 0-0 with Watford at the City Ground this evening.
The Reds were pretty comfortable throughout the game, despite the Hornets flying high in the Championship this season.
One man who did get the chance to start for the first time was midfield maestro Cafu.
The 27-year-old is on loan from Olympiacos and has been forced to wait patiently for his chance in the team.
Cafu has only made one other appearance for the Reds – coming off the bench during a 1-0 defeat against Middlesbrough.
He lined up against Watford with Jack Colback nursing an injury and put in a decent performance.
Of course, the hope will be that he gets sharper and on a couple of occasions he let himself down with some wayward passing.
He was tasked as the man to try and penetrate the Watford lines, with Ryan Yates and Harry Arter sitting in.
Supporters were certainly relatively pleased with the Portuguese performer though and his work rate can’t be criticised.
Here is what Nottingham Forest fans were saying about the summer signing after tonight’s draw.
Cafu has grown in to this. Looks a more mobile Samba Sow— DeltaDarikwa (@CityGroundShelf) December 2, 2020
Better, tonight. Pleased with Figs. Played well. Cafu also showed some decent glimpses. Got to use the fresh legs though. #nffc— Ardilla Secreta (@jitzjani) December 2, 2020
I like Cafu so far— Greg (@gergmitch) December 2, 2020

More impetus moving forwards with Cafu in the middle. Keeps his spot for next game for me #nffc— Gareth Roberts (@RedDogRoberts) December 2, 2020
Positives: Cafu is playing well. We look more solid with Worrall back.— Nick Guise (@NickGuise1) December 2, 2020
Lolley needs to switch sides and cut in. Knockeart needs to stop trying to do it all himself. Our full backs need crossing lessons. Taylor isolated. No attacking threat #nffc
