Two goals in three first-half minutes decided a full-blooded encounter at Highbury as both sides came away with a share of the spoils.

And Mellon was delighted with the spirit shown by his team. "It was one of those good old fashioned English league games under the floodlights," he said.

"It was real blood and thunder stuff and really competitive and I think it's a long time since I've seen the ball go into the box as many times as that. But the boys stood up and let themselves be counted.

"It was two groups of lads who wanted to win for their teams. I'm pleased with the performance, I couldn't ask any more of them.

"Scott Davies has made some fantastic saves. But we know he's capable of that, he's a top goalkeeper."

icky van Wolfswinkel's remarkable record of one goal from one game at least deserves an honourable mention. And I'm willing to bet that at least one of Costa, Ulloa or Enner Valencia will earn a place on the list by the end of the season. Probably not Costa
