Nottingham Forest fans react to Yuri Ribeiro’s debut against Fleetwood Town

The new-boy got off to a winning start.

It was another summer of change for Nottingham Forest and one of the players through the door was Yuri Ribeiro, who joined from Benfica.

The Portuguese Under 21 international has had to wait for his debut, but he got his bow in last night’s 1-0 EFL Cup victory against Fleetwood Town.

That set up the tie of the next round, a home clash against bitter rivals Derby County, where Ribeiro will again hope to feature.

A victory and a clean sheet will do very nicely on Ribeiro’s maiden appearance, and he took to Twitter after the match to hail the win.

The Forest supporters were buzzing with his display and responded in their numbers to let the new-boy know how impressed they were with his performance.

Forest have had a patchy transfer record in recent times – which has left them with a bloated squad – but on the early evidence, Ribeiro looks like a hit.

They’ll want to see plenty more of that from him, but if he helps Forest beat Derby later this month, he’ll be even more popular.
