The Lions currently lie one place and two points off the play-offs following Saturday's 1-1 draw at Bolton.
Andy Keogh marked his return from injury with a goal from the penalty spot and although Wanderers equalised through Keith Andrews' spot-kick, Jackett was happy to pocket another point towards their promotion bid.
"We battled very well and we defended when we needed to," said Jackett.
"It was a hard-earned point but a well-deserved one.
"Overall we've got four points out of six from a Bolton team that were in the Premier League last season and the result keeps us in touch, where we want to be."
