The final north London derby of the season ended all-square on Monday night. Arsenal reserves earned a 1-1 draw against the Tottenham counterparts in front of just under 2,000 fans at Barnet's Underhill ground.

Czech striker Tomas Peckhart gave the visitors the lead on 12 minutes when he turned the ball in at the far post, but Armand Traore leveled just before the half hour mark when he smashed home a stunning drive.

Spurs dominated after the break but failed to find a way past Arsenal keeper Lukasz Fabianski.

Arsenal coach Neil Banfield was relieved with a point but annoyed at the Jekyll and Hyde performance. "I thought the first half we played some good football - in the second half we were very poor," he said.
