THE goals of Kayden Jackson and Billy Kee have been vital to Accrington Stanley's encouraging start to the season and the former believes there is still more to come from the Reds' dynamic duo.

Jackson's summer arrival from Barnsley has seen John Coleman pair the two together up front and he has been rewarded with five goals each from his strikers as Stanley travel to Chesterfield today sitting third in League Two.

It was Jackson who scored Stanley's own goal in their 2-1 defeat at home to Grimsby on Tuesday night and the 23-year-old is quick to point out that all five of his strikes have come in the league, while Kee is languishing behind on four, with one in the EFL Cup.

That rivalry between the two is an indication of how quickly they have hit it off, and Jackson is delighted to be playing alongside Stanley stalwart Kee.

"It’s been brilliant. I don’t think I’ve ever had as quick and as good a relationship with a striker before, so that can only be a positive thing for us," Jackson said of the developing partnership.

"We’re both on five goals now, although I’ve got five in the league, he’s only got four in the league. It’s been very good playing with each other and pushing each other to do better.

"It’s early doors, we're still learning each other’s games and the more we play with each other the better we’ll get."

Coleman is relishing the competition between his strike pair and when told Jackson had pointed out he had one more league goal than Kee the Wham Stadium boss said 'I like that'.

And Jackson believes the pair are complimenting each other well this season.

"I’ve always preferred to play as a two, and have someone who can soak up the physical battle and there’s not many better around than doing that, whether it’s winning or his headers or getting the ball down," he said.

"Him doing that kind of work frees me up to do what I’m good at, which is picking the ball up and running at the defenders or running in behind, which has worked so far and hopefully it keeps working."

Despite Jackson's start in front of goal he is refusing to set any personal targets this season.

"The only target I set is to do well, whether that be scoring goals, helping the team with assists or just playing well," he said.

"As a striker I want to score as many goals as I can, I’m no different to any other striker, I want to score as many as possible."

Those only seen performances saw Jackson nominate for League Two player of the month and having been playing development football in front of a couple of hundred people recently he is relishing the spotlight.

"It’s a bit strange," he said. "Having come from a few months ago just playing Under-23 football at Barnsley and nobody really knowing about me, now I’m in the spotlight because I’ve been doing well, and hopefully that continues as long as I can.

"I hope come the end of the season people know about me even more."
