Stanley boss John Coleman admitted the 1-1 draw with Morecambe was a fair result, but insisted there were plenty of positives to take from the game.
Stanley defender Edwards slotted home a 73rd-minute penalty to give both mid-table sides a point in the local derby after former Reds man Kieran Charnock was adjudged to have fouled striker Terry Gornell. Morecambe had taken the lead just seven minutes earlier through a Phil Jevons strike.
Coleman said: "We came from behind and that's a positive we have got to take from the game.
"Morecambe played really well and there have been good saves by both keepers. Barry Roche made some fantastic saves against us and showed why he is so highly rated.
"We could have won it in the end but that would've been unfair on Morecambe.
"We have a good squad here now but we did play like a team who hadn't played for two weeks. We have taken one point from our last two home games though and we need to start winning our home games."
