There is a feel-good factor surrounding Nottingham Forest currently and snatching a late point at West Brom on Saturday has heightened that feeling.
Some supporters will likely be feeling more confident of promotion as a result, as that is now two positive results against top sides in the last three matches. Forest will, of course, have to avoid slipping up to teams they should beat such as their recent loss to Charlton, particularly at home, but there is clearly a character in the squad that means they should fight all the way to finish in the top two.
Brice Samba has been key to improving the team since he came into the side, and in total has only conceded 29 goals in 29 league games. Indeed, his decision to give away his gloves to a young fan after the Baggies’ clash has only added to his popularity.
Many fans have been quick to praise the goalkeeper and his action shows that the whole club is moving together in the right direction.
Top guy- great keeper!

It’s such a simple thing to do by a player but it really makes a persons day

Forest fans let us know what you think of Samba! Has he been a good addition this season and could he become a cult figure at the City Ground?
