Point pleases Wenger

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is confident his side can hold off Bolton's challenge and clinch fourth spot in the Premiership. The Gunners played out a grim goalless draw at Newcastle United on Easter Monday to maintain their two-point lead over Sam Allardyce's men who also drew - with Everton. The stalemate ended Arsenal's three-match losing run and Wenger thinks his side has finally turned the corner. He said: "I am not worried about the lack of goals because I feel our confidence dropped a little bit after we'd lost three times, and the first consequence of that is you do not score as many goals as you are used to. "But, of course, with the games we now have at home it will be important to score and I am confident we will and I feel we can hold off Bolton's threat. "They had a good opportunity today to come closer to us, so that keeps them at a fair distance, and now it's down to us how well we do against them on Saturday. "After the three defeats it was important not to lose and maybe it will be a good point at the end of the season."
