Nottingham Forest fans were very impressed by Brice Samba on his debut last night.

Forest brought in Samba late on in the transfer window from Caen, but Sabri Lamouchi threw the goalkeeper in at the deep end last night.

Despite having less than a week training with his new Forest teammates, Samba was put in the Reds’ starting line-up for their Carabao Cup clash with Fleetwood Town and he made a positive first impression.

 

Forest won the contest 1-0, with Samba looking very solid throughout.

Many Reds fans now want Samba to be promoted to first choice, after Aro Muric’s shaky start.

Muric has started both of Forest’s Championship matches so far, but has not covered himself in glory.

Lamouchi now has a real selection dilemma ahead of Forest’s next game, which comes against Birmingham City at the weekend.
