Maxime Colin was solid at the back and pretty decent going forward against Forest, and after the game he expressed his disappointment on Twitter at not getting the three points.
The Frenchman promised that the team will learn from their mistakes after letting a two-goal lead slip:
Absolutely gutted tonight. We have to learn quick from our mistake but definitely going in the right direction … #KRO

Fans were all very happy with the right-back’s performance after the draw at the City Ground:
Maxime we are Blessed to have you in this team .. IMO the best RB in this division! The Team deserved more again KRO lads it will come!

Some were hoping if he could perhaps play in goal:
You any good in goal?

you didn’t make a mistake! Unless you need to remind the keeper not to flap at shots!

We have a keeper but GM won’t swallow his pride

Although it is a shame that we are not seeing more of Wes Harding, Colin cannot be faulted for his displays. It may be that his understudy is keeping him on his toes.
The 26-year-old seems to be a player that Garry Monk completely trusts. He is played the full 90 minutes in every league game since the manager came to the club. His only omission was against Reading in the Carabao Cup when he was rested earlier this month.
