STANLEY fans may have struggled to pick their favourite of the four goals on Saturday - but Luke Joyce has no doubt.
The 21-year-old has been getting closer and closer to scoring for the Reds after signing from Carlisle in the summer.
Prior to this, he had just two league goals to his name and had begun to take a bit of stick as he felt that his Stanley goal would never come.
So when Billy Kee neatly back-heeled the ball to him and he came running to the edge of the area to slam the ball home with his unfavoured left foot against Torquay on Saturday, he was glad it was his moment.
"I knew as soon as I hit it that it was going in." said the midfielder. "I am
made up as it is long overdue, especially as it was my left foot as well. It’s not my strong foot but I will take it anyway.
"I have scored three league goals in my career – with my hip, my head and now my left foot.
"I might score one with my right soon but I hope more will come now!
"When I saw it hit the back of the net, it was a huge relief and I can’t remember how I celebrated. I certainly don’t practise celebrating!"
For Joyce though it was also a chance for him to seal his first team place after being a regular at the start of the season but missing a couple of games as he struggled with a slight injury.
"It was disappointing to be on the bench as it’s not nice and no one likes that," said the former Wigan trainee.
"That’s especially at places like Bradford where the boys are fighting for a point and you want to go on and help.
"But hopefully I can keep my place in the team now."
Manager John Coleman has actually got some selections dilemmas after being down to the bare bones at times this season as striker Kee also impressed for the second game running.
The Leicester loan teenager was involved in three of the Reds four goals, getting the ball and leaving it for Michael Symes to play the cross in for Andy Procter to stoop low for Stanley’s second.
Then his neat backheel set up Joyce and finally, for the fourth, he headed the ball down to send Procter racing free and he in turn crossed to Bobby Grant who took the ball around the defender and finished well.
"We scored some good goals," said Coleman. "Procky did well to get his head to the ball for his goal and I was pleased for Joycey. It was great link-up play and Billy did well to backheel it to an area where Joycey could go and attack and it was good to see him on the end of it. "
And while the attacking options are looking bright. Coleman now has some cover in defence,
Blackburn Rovers defender Johnny Flynn came in for his Reds debut and, after a shaky start where he was judged to have pulled back Scott Rendell for the Gulls 10th minute penalty, he got to grips with the game and linked up well with Phil Edwards.
Coleman had kept Darran Kempson on the sidelines with the defender on four bookings so he was available for Tuesday’s FA¿Cup tie with Barnet while Flynn was cup tied.
And Peter Murphy came into the right-back role for the injured Tom Lees and he too, as he got used to the game, acquitted himself well.
Despite having a squad of just 20, the win took the Reds within five points of the play-offs – dizzy heights indeed after all the problems the club has been through this season.
It was also the first time in this league campaign, that the Reds have gone behind and gone on to win the game as they made it two victories in a row.
They trailed after Nicky Wroe tucked home the spot kick but they showed their fighting qualities by coming back.
Jimmy Ryan, Joyce and Murphy all weren’t far away while Grant forced a superb save from Michael Poke before Lee Mansell tugged back Symes in the area and referee Andy Woolmer pointed to the spot again.
After all the penalty problems over the last two seasons, Phil Edwards is calm and assured and he made it four out of four from the spot for him.
And, a minute later, Procter was almost on the ground to head home and put the Reds in front.
Then the two followed after the break although Coleman was furious as his side did let Torquay back into it.
Jake Thomson was allowed to go on a mazy run and he set up Chris Zebroski who squeezed the ball between the post and Dean Bouzanis with eight minutes left.
That set Torquay, with ex-Red Kieran Charnock in the defence, up for a grandstand finish and Bouzanis had to keep out shots from Tim Sills and Chris Hargreaves.
Coleman added: "It wasn't comfortable. At 4-1 we were in a magnificent position and then for some reason, we stopped playing.
"But I am delighted with a win – although glad I am on Beta Blockers to keep me calm!"
