Match Summary A first home win in six weeks, but Arsenal are unlucky. Scoular has to rest his knee, but Flewin returns after an appendix op. Goring nets from close in, but then Gunners fail to capitalise. Clarke glances in Harris’s cross and Froggatt wins it when the ball squirts to him from Harris.
