FANS’ favourite Lee Molyneux returned to the Reds on the eve of last Saturday’s win at Mansfield.
The winger has already had two spells with the club, during which he made a habit of scoring both spectacular and important goals for the Reds.
After firing Stanley to Football League survival during the 2012/13 season, he joined League One Crewe that summer.
He returned on loan last term and having been on the fringes of the Alex team this term, John Coleman has brought Molyneux back on loan.
The 25-year-old will be at the Store First Stadium until January and came off the bench during Saturday’s game.
“It seems like I’ve never been away,” he said. “I have never really spent a long time away from the club.
“I know there is a new manager now but it just has the same feel around the place. It’s so familiar, I’m buzzing.
“When John and Jimmy (Bell) came in for me it was a no-brainer. I still want to play as high as I can and I want to get a run of games and press on.
“I know John and Jimmy are looking towards the top half of the table and the play-offs, and I want to be part of that. It’s just great to be back.”
Molyneux scored eight goals in the last 13 games of the 2012/13 season to help Stanley stay up.
He then added six from 14 starts last term, including a hat-trick against eventual champions Chesterfield and a brace against bitter rivals Morecambe.
Molyneux now has a total of 15 goals from 61 appearances for Stanley.
After the win at Mansfield, Coleman added: “He never had a shot when he came on so I had to feel his forehead to see if he was sick!
“But Lee will get better with the more games he plays. Everyone knows what he can do and he’s a great boost to our squad.”
Molyneux got another 90 minutes under his belt on Tuesday night, crossing for both Stanley goals as they lost 4-2 at home to Manchester United in the Lancashire Senior Cup.
