‘3-0 incoming’, ‘Love that’ – Plenty of Nottingham Forest fans react to Steve Cooper’s first starting XI
Nottingham Forest kick off the Steve Cooper era against Millwall today, with the new boss confirming his first starting XI.
Forest come into the game off the back of an impressive performance against Huddersfield Town, with Steven Reid leading them to their first win of the season.
Now, under the management of former Swansea City boss Steve Cooper, they host Millwall.
Cooper will be hoping for the perfect start to life at the City Ground, with supporters hoping this will be the turnaround in fortunes they’ve been waiting for after the sacking of Chris Hughton.
For the clash with Millwall, Cooper’s side is unchanged from Reid’s side that defeated the Terriers.
Brice Samba starts in goal, with Joe Worrall, Tobias Figueiredo and Scott McKenna making up a back three. Jamal Lowe and Djed Spence will be operating as wing-backs on the left and right respectively, while Ryan Yates and James Garner feature in central midfield.
Brennan Johnson and Joe Lolley will be out on the wings, with captain Lewis Grabban at centre-forward.
Here’s what fans had to say on Cooper’s choice of starting XI:
