Forest fans on Twitter are buzzing with Luke Steele’s debut performance

Nottingham Forest played out a classic cup tie with League Two side Bury on Tuesday night, eventually progressing to the second round of the Carabao Cup after winning 10-9 on penalties, and fans of the club on Twitter were buzzing with goalkeeper Luke Steele’s display.

Bury took the lead just two minutes into the game through Eoghan O’Connell’s header to shock the fans at the City Ground. Journeyman Steele was a summer signing for Forest and started the game on the bench. The 33-year-old was called into action though when Jordan Smith was sent off for fouling Bury striker Dominic Telford when through on goal.

Steele kept a clean sheet despite Forest’s numerical disadvantage before Matty Cash equalised late into stoppage time to take the game straight to penalties. The substitute keeper then saved the crucial penalty, but not before he’d tucked one away himself on his debut.

The former Barnsley and Panathinaikos man received plenty of praise on Twitter from Forest fans, with some even calling for him to start ahead of Costel Pantilimon. Check out the best of the tweets below.
