Molyneux, a defender by trade, came off the bench to bag a spectacular brace from midfield as Stanley beat Rochdale 3-0 in February to kick-start their League Two survival hopes.

A first-half hat-trick against Barnet followed, along with strikes in the victories over AFC Wimbledon and Wycombe, the latter a last-minute winner on Good Friday.

"He's been doing really well," Amond said. "The amount of goals he's scored has been a bit of a surprise for us because when he initially came he was a left-back.

"But he was pushed further up the pitch and since the Rochdale game when he came on and scored two his confidence has been sky high.

"He's been a very, very big part of what's happened over the last seven or eight weeks.

"Hopefully he can get a couple more before the end of the season but I think it's time that a couple of the other lads like myself started chipping in because we don't want to leave it all on him.

"Teams are going to be trying to suss him out now. They're going to try and double up on him as well. If they do that there's going to be players free."

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
