‘Really impressive’, ‘Looks promising’ – Plenty of Nottingham Forest fans react as 20-year-old’s display v Luton Town

A penalty save from Brice Samba just after the hour mark helped Nottingham Forest to steal a point at the City Ground as they held Championship rivals Luton Town to a draw.

In a game that the East Midlands outfit would have wanted to win considering the Hatters’ form, with Nathan Jones’ side losing three of their previous four second-tier matches coming into this tie, they have gladly taken a point after seeing Jack Colback sent off after the hour mark for hauling down Tom Lockyer in the box.

Elijah Adebayo’s denial from the spot then gave Steve Cooper’s men the platform to hold out for a point, fighting against the adversity of being without key man Max Lowe due to a groin injury and extending their unbeaten run to five games.

However, there were promising signs from a range of Forest players including penalty hero Samba and Manchester United loanee James Garner, with Braian Ojeda coming into the starting lineup to make his debut for the club.

How did the latter perform though in his maiden appearance for Cooper’s men? And how did he cope with the challenge of coming in from the start?

We take a look at how some Forest fans reacted to his performance.
