Nottingham Forest fans have been lauding Brice Samba after he was announced as the club’s Player of the Month for September.
Can Sabri Lamouchi guide Nottingham Forest to automatic promotion?
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).
However, since then, Samba has started the last seven games in the second division, keeping clean sheets in three of those games.
Samba has put in some brilliant performances for Forest since his move to the City Ground. In the away wins against Stoke City and Fulham, the player made five saves in each game to seal narrow wins (per WhoScored).
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:
Breeds confidence throughout the team & quite possibly the best signing this season, Guaranteed to save us an extra 15+pts this season,
