Simeon Jackson: The Norwich City striker scored the opener in the 1-1 draw with QPR
Goal hero Simeon Jackson wants the positives from Saturday's 1-1 draw with Queens Park Rangers to erase Norwich City's memories of the opening day of the season.
Chris Hughton's side will be seeking their first win of the campaign when they host Scunthorpe United in the second round of the Capital One Cup on Tuesday night.
Thrashed 5-0 by Fulham on the first day of the Premier League campaign, Norwich needed a vastly improved display against QPR to restore morale.
And Jackson, who struck the opener against Mark Hughes' men, was impressed by the response from his team-mates.
"I came into the team for the match and I want to stay in the team to show what I can do"
Simeon Jackson Quotes of the week
"It was a good performance at home, especially after the result against Fulham last week," he told Canaries Player.
"It's never easy on the back of a result like last weekend but the lads reacted well. We didn't get three points but it's a good result and hopefully we can carry on with that now.
"I'm delighted to score. We will build on that goal as a team and individually and carry it on for the season.
"Hopefully we'll get some more results between now and the end of the season."
Jackson was omitted from the squad against Fulham but celebrated his return with Norwich's first goal of the season.
Now the Canada striker hopes to have an extended run in the side, as he said: "I came into the team for the match and I want to stay in the team to show what I can do.
"Hopefully my performance will show that. It was also a good team performance and we must build on it.
"We had chances to win in the second half but it wasn't meant to be and we'll take positives from it.
"You need to win your home games and I think we created enough chances to win it. We'll certainly take those plus points into the next game, though."
