On-fire Ghanaian striker Fatawu Safiu powered his side Trelleborgs FF to a 4-1 win over Dalkurd by registering a hat-trick in the Swedish Superettan on Saturday afternoon.

The Ghanaian emerged the hero of the game for the Blue and Whites as his first half hat-trick proved vital in the heavy win against Dalkurd at the Vångavallen.

Erik Andersson opened the scoring for the hosts as they lived up to their favourites tag after just 6 minutes in the game.

Fatawu Safiu extended Trelleborgs advantage with a superb goal in the 11th minute before Dalkurd reduced the tally through Kerfala Cissoko’s 21st minute penalty strike.

Safiu sealed the victory for his side with a quick brace in the 41st and 43rd minutes respectively.

It was the Ghanaian maiden hat-trick for the club since joining from Asante Kotoko last year.

The 26-year-old was replaced with Henrik Johansson in the 83rd minute after the three points appeared to have been secured.

Safiu has netted 3 goals in 8 matches so far this term.
