Nottingham Forest battled hard to earn a point at the Den yesterday, drawing 1-1 with Millwall away from home.
The Reds are now unbeaten in their last two games, and will be keen to put a good run of form together heading into the festive period as they look to climb the table.
Forest had to battle hard to get something out of the game yesterday, as Millwall took the lead shortly after half-time through Tom Bradshaw.
Moments later, though, Alex Mighten scored his first ever senior goal, latching onto a long ball and firing into the net.
Brice Samba had to be there in stoppage time to pull off a fabulous save to deny Ryan Leonard’s long-range effort.
The goalkeeper was back to his best at the weekend. His form had been slightly up and down in recent weeks, but his performance on Saturday earned rave reviews.
Here’s what fans had to say…
That'll help silence the big man's critics. #NFFC

Tell them twice on Sunday, the bloke is top draw, but he feeds off confidence like the rest of the squad do

I agree with this. Maybe a touch kind on Sammy with the 7 (although he was MoM for me last game) Samba maybe 6 for me with his distribution today. The rest bang on #nffc

Samba – did what’s been needed
Christie – same as….
Soh – doesn’t like passing back
Worrall – has he touched the ball
Yuri – not bad
Sow – won what’s needed
Yates – won the ball ish
Cafu – not put a foot wrong
Mighten – needs the ball more
Ameobi – class
Grabban – wants it

Utterly wrong. Yates has been solid. Christie has been getting forward. Samba is quality, we have seen that for long stretches. Dropping him could do more harm to him long term and he’s a beast in the box
