Steve Davis says Lee Molyneux doing all the right things as he aims to make up for disappointing first season
Last night, left-footer Lee Molyneux made his first appearance for Crewe Alexandra since November last year and he has earned praise from manager Steve Davis for the way he has approached his work this summer.
Molyneux last featured for Crewe during our FA Cup tie away at Wycombe Wanderers before he was later loaned back to his previous club Accrington Stanley for the second half of the season.
The 25-year-old who previously played for Southampton and Everton replaced Brad Inman in last night’s 2-0 win over Barnsley in the first round of the Capital One Cup and played a role in helping Matt Tootle seal the win in the dying moment.
Molyneux led the break down the Crewe right hand and intelligently retained possession to allow Billy Waters to combine superbly with the advancing Tootle to seal a memorable cup victory.
Steve Davis told the club’s official web-site: “Lee came on and did fine. He kept the ball well and was involved in the second goal as well.
“To his credit he has worked really hard this summer and he wants to prove that he can play at this level. That is good enough for me and his attitude and work ethic has been first class. He wants to show that he can deliver and that is good enough to be a success at this level.
“All he has to do is carry on working hard and giving his all and I am sure more opportunities will come his way. Lee could be useful to us because we know he has a quality left foot.”
