The Congo-born ‘keeper enjoyed a slow start to life with the East Midlands club since his move from Caen, initially sitting out the first three Championship games of the season as back-up to on-loan man Arijanet Muric (via Transfermarkt).

The fans seem to have taken to the ‘keeper following his move from Ligue 2 in France as they took to Twitter to commend him for his award.

Here is a selection of tweets from the City Ground faithful:
