With the game still tied at 1-1, Ninga entered in the 69th minute of Sunday evening’s fixture, replacing Pierrick Capelle to score three goals for Les Scoistes.
The treble in 12 minutes meant the 26-year-old equalled the feat achieved by the former Poland international on October 20, 2007 against FC Lorient, during his time with Auxerre.

Incidentally, the treble ensured that the forward opened his goal account for the season.
Victory for the Stade Raymond Kopa giants keep them in second position behind leaders PSG with 12 points from six fixtures.
They travel to Stadium de Toulouse for their next outing against Alain Casanova’s side.
