ACCRINGTON Stanley striker Kayden Jackson believes the weekend draw with Exeter City was a 'positive point' for the Reds even though they missed the chance to secure promotion.

Jackson was on target for John Coleman's side to cancel out Jayden Stockley's opener but the hosts couldn't find the winner that would have taken them into League One.

But a draw against a Grecians side fighting for promotion themselves extended Stanley's unbeaten run to 10 games and means victory at home to Yeovil tomorrow will see them over the line.

And Jackson is taking the positives from the weekend clash.

"Because of the build up and the big day it is a slightly disappointing (result) but Exeter are a very good team but we will look back at the end of the season and see this as a good point," said the 24-year-old.

"I think we have to look at it as a positive point against a hard working team like Exeter so we will take the point and move onto Yeovil now."

Jackson, whose goal took him to 15 for the season, was also pleased with Stanley's resilience as they came from behind to earn a share of the spoils.

"They probably deserved their goal,"he said of Exeter's opener midway through the first half. "Stockley was a bit of handful and we didn't really manage him as we would have wanted to.

"I think we did well to keep them out and not let them get another goal.

"They were probably one of the best teams that we have faced here for quite a while.

"I am obviously delighted to get on the scoresheet again and was happy to cancel out their goal quite quickly."

And although they didn't win the game, the Stanley players were able to celebrate a victory in the Grand National after Tiger Roll took the Aintree honours.

The Reds squad had pooled together to back the 10-1 shot and were rewarded with a victory.

Jackson added: "The lads had a bit of money left over from one of the games on the coaches last week so we put it on so it has been a good day!"
