Despite taking all three points from Bolton Wanderers on Wednesday evening, a number of Nottingham Forest fans remain uneasy when it comes to goalkeeper Costel Pantilimon.
The 31-year-old Romanian international and former Watford and Manchester City stopper obviously kept a clean sheet in the match, and he has helped us to five shutouts so far in the 2018/19 campaign but doubts continue to exist for some when it comes to Pantsman.
Manager Aitor Karanka seems to have no such worries as he is a Championship ever present and that doesn’t look like changing any time soon and he has only conceded 15 goals all season so far as we pushed ourselves into seventh place and sit only four points behind this weekend’s opponents, Leeds United.
His distribution in midweek was a significant concern for these fans on social media as they commented on his performance and as you can see they weren’t happy.
No clue how pantilimon gets picked every week ????
