West Ham United star Tomas Soucek had praise for Nottingham Forest star Odysseas Vlachodimos after Sunday's win for the Hammers. The Greek goalkeeper was unable to stop Soucek from powering home with just minutes of the game remaining.

Forest will be devastated to leave The London Stadium with nothing to show for their efforts. The Reds led in the capital thanks to goals from Taiwo Awoniyi and Anthony Elanga.

Vlahcodimos in truth wasn't that busy in the Forest goal. Everything he did, he did so with relative ease. The one moment that did require the goalkeeper to exert himself came just before West Ham's winner when he made a brilliant save from Soucek.

West Ham star raves about Vlachodimos The Reds chose to change their goalkeeper for the home game against Aston Villa last weekend. Vlachodimos came in and helped Forest secure a 2-0 win and stop a run of six winless games.

He kept his place at West Ham and he was powerless to prevent the Hammers scoring three times. Ultimately, the bits he did do, however, he did so with minimal fuss and he looks a very good goalkeeper.

Forest have a star in Vlachodimos The Reds did well to get the goalkeeper over the line in the summer. Vlachdimos signed for Forest with a matter of hours of the transfer window left on transfer deadline day.


Forest star Vlachodimos has a number of Champions League appearances to his name and he's also the number one on the international stage for Greece.

Sunday was a day that everyone associated with Forest will want to forget. The performance level was pretty good once again but Steve Cooper will be desperate for his team to cut out the silly errors.

With Vlachodimos between the posts for Forest, there is hope that things can improve. After the break, the Reds have a number of fixtures that they will feel they can take points from and the team have to see it as an opportunity.
