The 19-year-old has started in both of the matches since Butcher took over as manager.
That might have been considered as a necessity given injuries to James McPake and Michael Nelson, but Forster has earned his place in the Leith side. He is expected to start once more against Partick Thistle tomorrow, not least after the praise he has received from his manager.
"I see a lot of myself in Jordon," said Butcher. "He's still raw in many ways, but exciting to watch and exciting to coach. He has a desire to learn and there's a rawness that is exciting, especially in training, because he doesn't hold back, he gets wired right in. That's what I want, what I like."
