STANLEY boss John Coleman hopes his players can use Saturday's draw against Exeter as a dress rehearsal for another shot at promotion when Yeovil Town visit the Wham Stadium on Tuesday night.

The Reds missed the chance to secure promotion from League Two after a 1-1 draw against Paul Tisdale's side.

But Coleman and his players will have another chance against the Glovers in midweek with a victory securing a spot in League One while a draw or defeat will be enough if Exeter fail to beat bottom of the table Chesterfield at home.

The Stanley boss was pleased with his players' effort in the weekend draw but is targeting an improvement for the Yeovil clash.

Asked if having had one bite at the promotion cherry might help his players ahead of another potential promotion party on Tuesday night, the Reds chief said: "Possibly, but I know that Yeovil will pose different problems to what Exeter posed.

"We have just got to work on our decision making. We have enough quality and that is enhanced when you work hard and you can't fault our players for lack of effort."

He added: "The players know they have a massive game on Tuesday and if they perform to the levels that they have done for most of the season then we are capable of winning the game but Yeovil are a dangerous opponent."

Kayden Jackson was on target for the Reds on Saturday to cancel out Jayden Stockley's opener and Coleman was pleased with the performance of his goalscorer but felt his side didn't create enough clear-cut opportunities.

Of Jackson, the Reds boss said: "It was a fantastic goal, I thought he was superb, he ran the channels brilliantly, he put them under pressure, he got us up the pitch. It was a shame he couldn't add to his goal."

Stanley fell behind to Stockley's smart finish midway through the first half but Jackson's goal ensured it was all square at the break and the Reds were the better side in the second half but were unable to fashion a second goal.

"It was a good game from a neutral prospective," added Coleman. "It was quite an open game and quite end to end. I think with balls in the box we probably shaded it, probably quality of chances they shaded it.

"I thought our decision making wasn't as good as what it normally is and the quality we have come to expect just dipped a little bit but we had won nine home games on the spin and playing a team as good as Exeter I don't think we can complain about another point.

"Exeter are a good side and capable of giving anyone a game. We did get at them and got at them really well in the first 15-20 minutes and then we had a lull.

"They scored and we went into our shell and they stuck their chest out and were very good for 20 minutes.

"I think after that we were probably the better team in the second half, we were more aggressive and on the front foot and they were relying solely on the counter attack.

"We made enough chances to win two games but they were not enough clear cut chances and we weren't clinical enough and we didn't make enough right decisions in the right areas.

"We go again on Tuesday."
