Steve Bould's young side got back to winning ways with a 2-1 victory at West Ham.

After suffering their first defeat of the season at Reading last Saturday after taking the lead, it was now their time to come from behind to win.

The hosts had opened the scoring with an Anthony Edgar penalty on the stroke of half time but the Gunners rallied back.

Luke Freeman headed the visitors back on terms after 65 and second half substitute Roarie Deacon hit what proved to be the winner five minutes later.
