JONATHAN WALTERS' late penalty deservedly secured his side all three points against Premier League title-chasers Arsenal at the Britannia Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

The Republic of Ireland international displayed incredible composure in front of the Boothen End by coolly slotting the ball into the bottom corner of the net after Laurent Koscielny had handled inside his own 18-yard box.

It was no more than the Potters had deserved following another superb home showing against one of the top-flights big boys.

Incredibly, of the 30 points that Mark Hughes' side have now accumulated this term, 10 of them have been secured in four home matches against the Gunners, Manchester United, Chelsea and current leaders Manchester City.

The margin of victory could arguably have been greater had Peter Crouch managed to prod home one of several half-opportunities that fell his way, whilst Glenn Whelan and Geoff Cameron had also gone agonisingly close to breaking the deadlock prior to Walters' 76th minute spot kick.
