Arsenal Reserves 0 West Ham Reserves 1

The first half was very even, with both sides playing attractive football but neither side really creating much in the way of goalscoring opportunities. The left wingers for each side were the best players on the pitch. Jack Wilshere's touch and vision for Arsenal looked their best outlet, whereas West Ham's attacks came mainly from the pace of Anthony Edgar on the left.

As the half progressed Arsenal began to look the more comfortable side and in the last ten minutes of the half dominated possession. However, against the run of play, it was West Ham who created the best chance of the half when Kearns beat a couple of defenders and weaved his way into the box, only to see his shot cannon back off the crossbar.

In the second half Arsenal dominated the possession but West Ham defended well and Arsenal never looked like scoring. In the 71st minute West Ham made a rare attack and managed a flurry of shots on goal. Eventually the ball fell to Montano, whose shot was knocked out by the keeper to Miller who scored from 7 yards.

A minute after that Kearns had a good chance from ten yards but his chipped shot was well saved. After that West Ham defended well and held on for the lead. This win means West Ham move to third in the league.
