Steve Gatting says Chris Willock showed what he is capable of in front of goal against Blackburn Rovers.
The winger struck a brace during the 2-1 win against Damien Johnson’s side at Emirates Stadium to book Arsenal’s place in the play-off final.
"I though we passed the ball well. We created a lot of chances, and if you want to be critical, perhaps we could have made better use of our chances"
The Gunners now face Aston Villa for a place in Division One, and Gatting says Willock will need to carry his good form into his side’s next clash.
“Chris was good, along with lots of others,” he told Arsenal Player. “We are trying to get him to be more effective in the attacking third of the pitch.
“He showed he can do it and now he has to carry that into the next game on Tuesday. We will prepare [for Aston Villa] as normal. We will look at them [Aston Villa] a little bit but not much and see how we can add to this performance.
"I though we passed the ball well. We created a lot of chances, and if you want to be critical, perhaps we could have made better use of our chances. Overall, I was very happy with the performance. The boys are pleased about it and it was a good performance. We were deserved winners in the end."
