DAN Barlaser was happy with his first senior league goal and added how it came at a good time for his side.

The Newcastle loanee scored Stanley's equaliser against Southend on Saturday.

Barlaser was disappointed withe the goal his side conceded.

"It came at an important time of the game because we were on top and we were 1-0 down.

"I think it was on about 60 minutes so we'd pushed on and had loads of chances after that so I'm very disappointed that we didn't win the game.

"I'm happy that we've come from behind and nicked a point."

Barlaser added how he knew his strike was going in as he hit it.

"It was a very good one. I've had chances before which I should've scored with," said Barlaser.

"It's a long time coming and I'm happy it's gone in for us.

"You know when you've hit them and I knew I'd hit that. I was running after I'd hit it because it was going straight in the corner - the keeper was never saving it, I knew it was going in."

The central midfielder was confused with the goal that Southend scored.

"We're disappointed with the goal we conceded as well," said Barlaser.

"The referee said there were two players offside so I'm thinking 'how does that count then?'

"It was a bit of a mix up between the back four but we'll learn from that.

"We had chances to win the game anyway, it's a point at the end of the day."

Stanley are now three games unbeaten after not winning since Boxing Day.

"It's three games unbeaten, after the run we've had, to get a draw at Sunderland and good win against Oxford and then just missing out on a win today - it's quite positive really," said Barlaser.

John Coleman thinks his midfield should score more and Barlaser agrees with this.

"The gaffer said we need more goals from midfield and I get in positions on the edge of the box, hopefully I'll get more.

"My family are over there so I've seen them. My mates have text me so that's about it really.

"It's my first league goal so it's a proud moment but it's not one to dwell on, I'll juts look forward to the next game."
