Nottingham Forest goalkeeper Brice Samba apologised to the supporters for his mistake in the draw at Millwall last night.
Really feel like I could have done better on that last goal but the ball movement was so s**t !!! Sorry to let you down on this one I owe you guys 🙏🏾 thanks for the continuous support I love you all ❤️ #NFFCUBeauty

The stopper failed to keep hold of a long-range shot from Shaun Williams and Aiden O’Brien was on hand to stab home an equaliser for the Lions in stoppage time.
Whilst that was a fair result given how Millwall dominated the first half, the manner of the draw will have frustrated Forest and Samba took to Twitter to send an honest message to the fans following the game.
“Really feel like I could have done better on that last goal but the ball movement was so s**t !!! Sorry to let you down on this one I owe you guys 🙏🏾 thanks for the continuous support I love you all.”
The keeper was very harsh on himself given the way the ball swerved and most fans recognise just how good the 25-year-old has been since joining in the summer.
So, there was a very positive reaction to his tweet and here we look at some of the comments…
Without your saves we’d be a lot worse off. You don’t owe us anything. Chin up, we go again.

I think with the amount of saves you’ve made you’re entitled to a few of those, that said it wasn’t all down to you, but onwards we go, class keeper 👍
