A brace, including an 89th-minute winner from Tarum Dawkins secured Arsenal Under-18s a 2-1 win over Southampton at London Colney. 

The midfielder gave Carl Laraman's side the perfect start when he scored in just the second minute but Southampton equalised in the 67th minute through substitute Dan Demkiv.

Dawkins popped up with the winner a minute from time to lift Arsenal further away from the bottom of the Premier Academy League. 

Laraman's side now have 15 points from 20 league games.
