Cherries: Howe welcomes Molesley return (with video)
The midfielder travelled to Notts County on Tuesday and warmed up with the Cherries squad as he continued his comeback from an Achilles problem.
Plagued by injury, the former non-league star has not featured for Cherries since a substitute appearance at Brentford on Boxing Day last year.
An all-action and popular performer when at his best, Molesley got valuable game-time by finishing last season on loan at Aldershot.
But boss Howe, who handed Molesley his first permanent Cherries contract, is keen to get him involved at Goldsands Stadium as he steps up his fitness bid.
Howe told the Daily Echo: “He has been out for a while with an Achilles problem.
“We took him (to Notts County) just so he could be around the lads and do some work before the game.
“Mark is someone we value very highly as a person and a player. He is a fantastic character - desperate to do well - and a real team player, so we are only too pleased to involve him as he steps up his recovery.
“He has still got some way to go before he is in contention to play.”
