A late equaliser from Tarum Dawkins secured a point for Arsenal Under-18s away to Leicester City on Saturday.
In the 49th minute, Leicester took the lead when Ryan Huddart could only parry Danny Rowe’s shot into Sam Jones’ path and he slotted home.
But Dawkins snatched a point for the Gunners with just two minutes remaining. The substitute picked the ball up on the halfway line and beat two defenders before driving a low finish into the far corner.
Arsenal had two chances to grab all three points in the dying moments.
Ainsley Maitland-Niles weaved his way into the box but his shot was blocked by the onrushing Sharpe before Glen Kamara volleyed over from close range.
The draw means the young Gunners now have nine points from 15 games but remain bottom of the Premier Academy League.
