Nottingham Forest drew 0-0 with 10-man West Bromwich Albion at The Hawthorns last night and the performance of goalkeeper Brice Samba has proven a talking point among Reds fans.
Samba was the busier of the two keepers in the West Midlands but both teams had chances to win the game, particularly in a frantic final 20 minutes.
Though they were hardly dominant, Albion were on top until Jayson Molumby was shown a second yellow card after 70 minutes but Forest were unable to make their numerical advantage count.
It may not have been three points but the result does extend the Reds’ unbeaten run to six games and mean that it’s now three clean sheets and just one goal conceded in the last four matches.
Samba’s performances have been a key factor in that run and he played his part last night, making some vital saves to deny the Baggies.
There were some shaky moments as well, including some wayward punches and poor distribution, and his all-around display has proven a talking point among many fans of the East Midlands club.
