Nottingham Forest goalkeeper Brice Samba has delivered a three-word verdict on his own performance after Saturday’s win at Millwall.

The goalkeeper was in fine form. He produced good saves from Benik Afobe and Mason Bennett to preserve a second clean sheet in succession for the Reds.

Samba has been really impressive since Steve Cooper came in. In Chris Hughton’s last game in charge, the stopper lost his place and was left on the bench.

Since then he’s produced several strong performances. He was brilliant in the game against Millwall as he kept his eighth clean sheet of the season.

Samba, 27 arrived at the City Ground in 2019. He checked in from Caen and was originally expected to be an understudy to on-loan stopper Aro Muric.

He quickly ousted the Manchester City man, however, and showcased his brilliance between the posts for Forest.

Samba has now made 113 appearances for the Reds. He’s firmly established as the number one goalkeeper and has kept 37 clean sheets.

Right now, he’s proving himself as one of the division’s top goalkeepers. He has cut out the careless mistakes and is showcasing his class to his previous critics.

Forest will hope his form continues.

What has Samba said about his Forest performance on Saturday?

The charismatic player has made a tongue in cheek quip regarding his performance at the weekend. He has used just three words, to sum up how he feels he played during the Millwall game.

Forest have tweeted a question to supporters asking them how they felt he played on Saturday. Samba has sabotaged the comments and delivered his own verdict.

Samba has a smile that lights up the City Ground. When he is happy, supporters are happy and the optimistic fans will hope the goalkeeper can lead the Reds into the top six this season.
