Nottingham Forest were forced to settle for a point in their most recent match at the City Ground, as they drew 1-1 with promotion-chasing Reading.
The Reds took the lead shortly into the second-half, as Reading defender Tom Holmes could only divert the ball into his own net after a strong run and cross from Forest winger Sammy Ameobi.
Reading responded late on in this one though, as the returning Yakou Meite stepped off the substitutes bench to fire home the equaliser, after be threaded through by Lucas Joao.
Meite fired past Brice Samba, who might feel as though he could have dealt with the goal better. Samba has been a regular in the Nottingham Forest team this season, and has made 37 appearances in total for the club this term.
The shot-stopper will be eager to play his part as Forest look to pull further clear of the Championship relegation zone as this year’s campaign progresses.
Plenty of Nottingham Forest supporters took to social media to react to Samba’s recent display in the draw with Reading, with a number of fans unhappy with his role in the Royals’ equaliser.
Take a look at the best of the reaction from Twitter below…
Figs isn’t great but to his defence he’s a 3rd choice CB for a team 17th in Championship.
Nowhere near the level of Worrall or McKenna but he’s a half decent back up.
Another Samba mistake, last week I let him off, truth be told, makes way too many mistakes #nffc

Samba jumps over the goal … dived in the wrong direction for a sitter they missed …… Smith isn't the answer but Samba needs PROPER competition #nffc

Take a point against a very good team. Samba suspect for their equaliser, had a few like that, not as elitist as some fans make out. Shame about Lolley. #nffc

Time to give Samba a rest #nffc

Samba just deciding he doesn’t want to save that. He’s quickly becoming a liability again. #NFFC
