Ajose treble stuns County

PA Sport

Man-of-the-moment Nicky Ajose hit a hat-trick to spare Peterborough's blushes in a 4-3 success over 10-man Notts County at London Road.

Darren Ferguson's side received a huge helping hand as they recovered from a nightmare start following the dismissal of County's Ronan Murray for throwing a punch at Danny Swanson after just 15 minutes.

By then Enoch Showunmi and Murray had fired the in-form visitors into a two-goal lead but Posh's numerical advantage eventually told.

Ajose halved their arrears on the half-hour with a fine low finish before top-scorer Britt Assombalonga headed them level nine minutes into the second period with his 21st goal of the season.

Ajose completed the turnaround with 16 minutes to go with a spectacular 25-yard rocket but County stunned the home faithful as Jack Grealish drilled in a leveller from an acute angle two minutes later.

But Ajose got Posh out of jail when pouncing on a rebound in the 85th minute after Nathaniel Knight-Percival's header from a Swanson corner had been brilliantly saved by unfortunate keeper Bartosz Bialkowski as County's three-match winning run came to an end.
