Under pressure, Ian Wright produced a brilliant display and scored a hat trick to fire Arsenal into the next round of FA Cup with a 3-1 victory against giant-killing Yeovil. But once again the headline of the match was not his performance on the field but controversy with regards to his behaviour. A gesture of silencing the home crowd was followed by an over-exuberant wave to the home fans behind the goal led to angry reactions from the crowd. The tempers on the pitch also flared as the referee had to ask Arsenal support staff to calm down after multiple challenges by Yeovil striker Spencer. Ian Wright had been involved in multiple incidents of the upsetting crowd and illegal fouls on opponents that season.
