Under 23s didn’t manage to get a win against on Monday night in the 2 fixture, but there was still some entertainment to be had despite the 0-0 draw at Ewood Park.

Captain Joe Willock ran almost the length of the pitch only to be brought down outside the box by Rovers centre-back Hayden Carter. The 18-year-old defender was given a straight red card by the referee:

The young Gunners had already been reduced to ten men by that stage after was sent off early in the second half after an off-the-ball incident involving Lewis Travis.

Freddie Ljungberg’s side still managed to pick up a point, and have recovered very well from the astonishing 6-5 defeat to on the opening day.

They are currently fifth in the 2 Division 1 table after five games played. They face next at Meadow Park on Friday evening.
