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.
The former Burton man has struggled to establish himself in the starting line-up this season, but now has four goals in his last two games.
“Marcus has scored a hat-trick but his performance was excellent,” said boss Gavin Cowan.
“He was reliable in possession, he was full of hard work, chasing back on the full-backs, and he deserved his three goals.
“Marcus is a great character, really, really funny, and the lads love him. But he’s quite complex when it comes to football, so there has to be an element of man-management with him.”
