Many Nottingham Forest fans are fuming with goalkeeper Brice Samba following his error in the Championship defeat they suffered against Reading.
In the first twenty minutes, 23 year-old Ryan Yates was sent off after he cleared a shot from Reading off the line using his hand. However, he was forced into that decision due to a poor error from Samba, as he let the ball slip out of his hands, not claiming a cross with any confidence.
Reading converted the penalty following the handball and it was a daunting task from there for Chris Hughton’s side. Forest could never overcome the challenge as they eventually lost 2-0.
Errors like the one from Samba sum up the position the club are in and how low on confidence some of the players are. This will be something Hughton needs to sort out sooner rather than later, but if confidence is an issue Samba probably shouldn’t look at Twitter any time soon.
Here is what Forest fans said about Samba:
We need a new keeper Samba yet again failing to handle an easy ball in the box. Simply not good enough #nffc

#nffc why do we stick with samba. Jordan is a superior shot stopper. Time for a change please

It’s moments like that why Samba would not be my keeper – cost us more than a goal you can say what you like about Yates but that’s instinct and Samba’s lax attitude costs us…#nffc it was a dive though did I mention that!

Samba has regressed so much as a keeper #nffc

You can blame both btw for that goal. Awful keeping from Samba & no need to do that this early from Yates. When is the last time we conceded without a silly error? #NFFC
