Lukasz Fabianski insists Arsenal will be doing everything they can to lay their hands on the Carling Cup this season.

The Polish international was in fine form as the Gunners knocked out Bolton on Tuesday night, making a series of fine saves as the visitors chased a late equaliser at Emirates Stadium.

Fabianski hailed the spirit of the Arsenal team after they came from behind to win. The 2011 finalists are two steps from a return to Wembley and their goalkeeper is determined to lift the trophy this time.

“This year we are trying to go for that trophy, to win it,” he said. “I think there is a big desire to do it.

“When you saw the team on Tuesday it was a mixture of experienced and young players. Since I have been here every single season it looks like that. All the youth players, players from the Reserves, they have an opportunity to show themselves. Every single year they are proving that they deserve to play for Arsenal.

“It was a good result against Bolton, especially after we conceded a goal early in the second half.

“We came back really quickly and scored two fantastic goals. Then we had to defend well. I think we have done that and we can be quite pleased with our performance - and the win, obviously.”
