Nottingham Forest won 2-1 at Bristol City last night to make it four wins on the trot. The Reds secured the victory thanks to two Lyle Taylor goals deep into stoppage time.

It’s the first time since March 2013 that Forest have racked up a quartet of wins in succession. Quite frankly, Steve Cooper’s men don’t know when they are beaten right now.

Confidence is sky-high at the moment and naturally, it’s hard to find too many negatives to talk about at the moment; and why would we want to!

One little one is perhaps worthy of note, although Forest fans did see the best and the worst of Brice Samba last night.

His tame effort to save Nahki Wells’s shot in the first half allowed Alex Scott to tap into an empty net from close range.

Despite that, he dusted himself down and produced a splendid save from Wells in the second half, with the ball destined for the top corner.

The game served to highlight Samba in a nutshell. Although he is capable of magic moments, he has proved this season to have one too many errors creeping into his game.

Since checking in from Caen he has largely been a favourite among the fan base. His gamesmanship tactics and clear determination to do well for the club have always gone down well.

Over the last 12 months, some supporters have lost faith, however. Some feel that he should be doing more and cutting the mistakes out of his game by now.

What have Forest fans said about Samba?

Last night opinions were divided on the big stopper.

Plenty slammed him for his error but others raved about him after his save to keep Forest in the game.

Here is a look at the divisive stance that Forest took on a memorable night in Bristol.
