Nottingham Forest-owned goalkeeper Ethan Horvath is one of the best in the Championship, according to Luton stopper Matt Macey.

The American custodian has really thrived under regular action at Kenilworth Road during 2022/23.

Luton are comfortably inside the play-off places and they will hope to do what they couldn’t do last year and win promotion.

Horvath made 11 appearances for Forest during their promotion-winning season that saw them reach the Premier League.

He had signed on a free transfer from Club Brugge but ultimately he found it hard to dispossess Brice Samba.

After the Premier League was reached, Forest targeted a new goalkeeper and subsequently, Horvath was allowed out on loan.

Luton stopper Macey is on loan with Portsmouth at the moment and he’s had some praise for the Forest stopper.

The 28-year-old told The News: “Being at a club like Luton in the Championship there’s obviously competition for places.

“I think it’s clear to everyone that Ethan, who has played this season, has been one of the best keepers in the Championship.

“That’s not just my opinion, but the opinion of others.

“His consistency levels have been as good as anyone I have seen in that league.

“Ethan is on loan from Forest, a Premier League club, which just shows the quality he has with 16 clean sheets so far.”

Forest-owned Horvath is one of the best in the Championship

Macey does have a point. No other club has seen their goalkeeper keep 16 clean sheets in the Championship so far this season.

Horvath has thrived under regular action. In Rob Edwards he has a manager who has placed his faith in him and he’s welcomed that.

The talented stopper might have a future at Forest. In the summer he will have a year remaining on his deal and there will be discussions.

If Forest are relegated, the club might choose to hand him a chance to star in the team.

Dean Henderson and Keylor Navas are both on loan at the City Ground and relegation would end both of those players’ time at the club.

Horvath is an option. In the short-term, however, he will have his eyes on a second successive promotion, this time with Luton.
