Deadly Dem­bele

- Sports · Soccer · Jack Taylor · Darren Ferguson · Sam Ricketts


SIRIKI DEM­BELE struck a hat-trick, won a spot-kick and was on the re­ceiv­ing end of a red-card chal­lenge.

He was fouled for the penalty from which Jonson Clarke-Har­ris gave Peter­bor­ough the lead and re­stored the ad­van­tage af­ter Josh Daniels had equalised.

Josh Vela was dis­missed for a foul on Dem­bele, who struck twice in the sec­ond half be­fore Jack Tay­lor added a fifth. Man­ager Dar­ren Fer­gu­son said: “Siriki was ab­so­lutely bril­liant. We all know what he is ca­pa­ble of do­ing and to­day ev­ery­one saw it.

“The chal­lenge on him for the red card was noth­ing short of a dis­grace, but he picked him­self up, got on with it and got him­self two more goals in the sec­ond half.”

Shrews­bury boss Sam Rick­etts said: “Ul­ti­mately in­di­vid­ual er­rors cost us.”
