The Nigerian’s first treble since 2012, with West Bromwich Albion, powered his team to the Indonesian topflight summit

Madura United’s hopes of winning the Indonesian Liga 1 title got a massive boost as a first hat-trick in five years from Peter Oemwingie fired them to a 6-0 victory over Semen Padang on Monday.

The 35-year-old fired Gomes de Olivera’s men upfront with his 20th minute strike before the goals poured in at Gelora Bangkalan Stadium.

In the 37th minute, Nigeria’s Junior Nwokolo doubled the lead, as the former Super Eagles star completed his hat-trick in the 43rd and 63rd minutes respectively to hand his team a convincing victory.

Odemwingie, who took his tally to nine goals in 10 games in all competitions, leads the Liga 1 topscorers’ chart.

His last treble came against Wolverhampton Wanderers in an English Premier League encounter on February 12, 2012.
