Jay Emmanuel-Thomas came off the bench to grab a late winner and keep Arsenal Under-18s flying high in the Academy League.

Steve Bould fielded a younger side than usual against Ipswich as many of the youngsters who helped Arsenal to a midweek Youth Cup victory were left on the bench. Gilles Sunu - who scored a hat-trick against Wolves - was among those given a break.

Ipswich took advantage, making life hard for Arsenal with a stubborn rearguard action. But they finally succumbed four minutes from time when Thomas, who replaced Chuks Aneke with 20 minutes left, found the net.
