Kayden Jackson admits it has been a dream start to his Stanley career with four goals in the opening three league games.

Stanley have won two and lost one of their League Two encounters so far and Jackson has been a hit since he signed from Barnsley for an undisclosed fee in the summer.

He scored against Colchester in the opener, hit a brace in the loss at Yeovil and chipped in with the opener against Mansfield on Saturday before Billy Kee scored a last gasp winner.

“It has definitely been a good start from my point of view,” said the 23-year-old. “Everything is going right for me in front of goal and long may it continue but I know I will have to continue working hard to make sure I keep it up.

“From the club’s point of view, six points out of nine is not bad either so it has been a good start.

“Yeovil was a disappointing defeat but we were determined to bounce back against Mansfield. It was good to score a late goal as I was getting a bit of stick from their fans. I don’t mind – I can take it and dish it out – but to score in such a dramatic fashion was enjoyable.”

Jackson was keen to praise his team-mates for his four-goal start.

“They just make it so easy for me. I am playing a more central attacking role which I haven’t done at other clubs and Billy (Kee), Sean (McConville) and Jordan (Clark) just make it so easy for me with their balls into the box and I have got to make sure I take the chances they create.

“Billy is one of the best target men in the league and his link-up play is superb. At Accrington, we play as a team, not as individuals, so that’s what makes it so good.

“Mansfield were one of the bookies favourites to go up so it’s great to get a win against a side who are set to be up there.”
