But the big keeper wants to be at the heart of the action again when Celtic resume their pursuit of Champions League points.
The visit of Ajax to Parkhead on Tuesday will bring the first half of the Group H programme to a conclusion.
And Forster, despite winning massive praise for his performances in the opening two games, against AC Milan and Barcelona, knows it's points not plaudits that must be won in the double-header against the Dutch masters.
A draw at home against Milan has got Frank de Boer's side up and running and into third spot following their opening-day mauling in the Nou Camp where they lost 4-0.
Parkhead is where Celtic expect to gather most of their points, and one game has already slipped by without them taking any.
So Forster recognises Neil Lennon's Bhoys must get off the mark next week and bounce back from their worst start to a Champions League campaign.
He said: "It's very important you try to get as many points as you can from your home games. But there were plenty of positives to take from the game against Barcelona.
"We played well and, although they had a lot of possession, they didn't dominate us that much.
"They didn't really threaten the goal until late in the game.
"So if we can play like that in the last four games, I would expect to pick up some points."
Forster agrees with Lennon that their performances in the opening two matches were worthy of something more than pats on the back for organisation and effort.
The loss of skipper Scott Brown with half an hour of the Barca game to go left them with a mountain to climb.
He will find out tomorrow if his one-game ban is to be extended when Uefa's Disciplinary Committee consider the incident with Neymar.
The fine line between winning, drawing and being left with nothing but regrets is never more pronounced than in Champions League games.
But Forster knows there is nothing to be gained from feeling sorry for themselves.
He believes they have come very close to making a good start to the qualification race, and now need to build on what they have done well.
Forster said: "We come off the back off the games with no points and, obviously, we are disappointed about that, considering the performances we have put in.
"We have probably just been missing that little bit of luck at times. But we've been fully in both games and competed well over 90 minutes.
"It's just little individual things that have been unfortunate, and at that level you get punished."
Lennon will check on all of his international players when they return from playing for their countries, then finalise his approach to Saturday's game against Hibs at Easter Road and the crunch tie against Ajax which quickly follows.
Mikael Lustig is already a concern, but the break for World Cup games has allowed the likes of Joe Ledley, James Forrest and Derk Boerrigter to rebuild their fitness.
With Brown joining Adam Matthews and Steven Mouyokolo on the absent list, the squad is being tested. And the absence of the in-form captain will be sorely felt.
"It's unlucky for Brownie, but we have a tremendous squad, and whoever comes in will do a fantastic job," Forster assured Celtic TV.
He added: "It's been a fantastic experience playing in the Champions League for the last two years.
"If you include the Europa League the season before that, the squad has really grown in confidence and belief off the back of those performances.
"We've had the opportunity to play against big teams and big players and we have all shown what we can do."
Before they can turn their full attention to Ajax, however, Forster knows Lennon will insist they retain pole position in the SPFL when they take on Hibs.
The Hoops are the only side still unbeaten in the top division, and Forster said: "We are proud of that, so it's important we keep that run going to maintain momentum."
