Brice Samba has told the Nottingham Forest official website that his favourite save came against Leeds United last season.

The 26-year-old goalkeeper has recently rediscovered his best form, with Forest losing just once in 10 league matches.

Samba signed in the summer of 2019 from Caen and enjoyed a standout maiden campaign at the City Ground.

He had plenty of solid moments last season after arriving from Ligue 1 and quickly established himself as a fan favourite.

Samba made a pivotal save in last season’s 2-0 win over Leeds United. With Forest leading by a goal to nil, he stopped a Liam Cooper header, before punching it clear despite being on the floor.

It was a save that lives long in the memory of the Congolese custodian.

He told the club’s official website: “It’s not the best save but the most important one came against Leeds. For sure, the one against Leeds last season.”

Samba kept 15 clean sheets for the Reds last season and enjoyed some memorable moments in the team.

He was picked up for just £1.8 million and that has proved a relative success by the recruitment team.

The uncompromising stopper did have some struggles earlier during the current campaign.

He was on a rocky road towards the begging of the campaign but since Chris Hughton arrived he has been impressive.

Against Preston North End recently several strong saves helped Forest claim an important victory and last week against Coventry he was in fine form.

Samba kept his eighth clean sheet of the campaign against Wycombe on Saturday and there is more to come from the stopper.

His choice of best save is likely to delight Forest supporters.
