Arsenal progressed to the Quarter-Finals stage of the UEFA Women's Cup despite a narrow defeat against Brondby in the final group fixture.

The Gunners were without the suspended Kelly Smith and injured Faye White, and the Danish side took full advantage of Arsenal's depleted team to register a 1-0 win.

Stine Kjaer Jensen netted in the 65th minute, heading home a Julie Bukh Rydahl cross but Arsenal nearly snatched a point late on with Rachel Yankey forcing a good save from Brondby goalkeeper Anna Olsen.

The result means Brondby face French side Montpellier HSC over two legs in the Quarter-Finals, while Arsenal must overcome 2004 finalists Frankfurt.

In the Group's other remaining fixture, Lada Toliatti and KS AZS Wroclaw drew 3-3.
