Trailing 2-0 at half-time, we battled back for a point with goals from Jamie Redknapp and Robbie Keane's dramatic penalty in injury time.
"I'm very pleased for the supporters," said acting boss David. "It was important to get a point. You couldn't imagine the deflation we felt to go a goal down in the first few minutes.
"Then to concede the second was a massive blow, knowing full well that every time you go forward and have lots of the play there is always the danger they might catch you again on the counter attack. They have such pace, such passing ability.
"We had forced our way back into the game, against a very strong midfield, but then conceded a second.
"But the lads responded in superb fashion. That's the first time Arsenal have been pulled back after going 2-0 up for a long time. We showed fantastic character."
David Pleat was delighted with the response of the lads after Sunday's thrilling 2-2 draw against Arsenal.
