Arsenal boss Don Howe called their hard-fought 2-1 win over Luton a "good, tough, typical English game".
An Ian Allinson penalty put Arsenal ahead before Mick Harford levelled for the Hatters with a header.
But Arsenal won a bruising contest when Graham Rix's deflected 58th minute free kick beat Les Sealey to earn all three points.
