In-form striker Marcus Dinanga has been urged to use his hat-trick heroics as a springboard towards fulfilling his potential.

Dinanga came off the bench to turn Saturday’s National North clash at Darlington on its head, striking three times as AFC Telford came from 2-0 down to win 3-2.

“He was reliable in possession, he was full of hard work, chasing back on the full-backs, and he deserved his three goals.
