Emile Sinclair was thrilled his first hat-trick in professional football.

Striker Emile Sinclair clutched the match ball proudly following his first hat-trick in professional football as Peterborough United recorded their first league win of the campaign with a 3-1 success at Hull City.

The former Macclesfield Town and Nottingham Forest front man was in fine form and took all three goals with style. He was delighted with his treble and is hoping for more to come.

'I was delighted to grab my first goal of this season so to go on and get three is just incredible.

'I’m made up to be honest, but mainly because the team won. I have the match ball, but it was a good team performance and a much-needed win for us.

'I haven’t been involved much this season, but I played well in the reserves last week and the gaffer pulled me after the game and asked me how I was feeling.

'I told him I was raring to go and thankfully I delivered, but this is only the start I have to become more consistent to stay in the team.

'It was great to play alongside Tyrone again and he played really well. We are very good friends off the pitch which helps and we’ve been talking about playing together and making sure we took the chance when it came along. I think we did that and now we need to make sure we string a few results and performances together.

'I’ve scored twice in a game a few times before, but never managed a hat-trick and I was pleased with the goals. My pace has always been a strength, but I’ve needed to be more composed in my finishing and these were three decent finishes,' Sinclair said.
