Boris Kabi bagged a hat-trick for Ajman to round off the first half of their Pro League campaign with a resounding away victory over the basement club Dibba Al Fujairah.

Conditions were far from ideal for a free-flowing game as the players found the pitch slippery under foot following a heavy downpour in the second half.

Earlier, Karrar Jassim, the Iraq international, who was sent off for dissent in the 73rd minute, put the visitors ahead with a strike on 12 minutes.

Kabi doubled the lead four minutes before the break and regained the two-goal cushion for Ajman with a powerful header shortly after Luiz Fernando, the Brazilian forward, pulled one back for Dibba.

The Ivorian completed his treble with a goal in the fourth minute of injury time.

The win moved Ajman up a place into 10th on 15 points, while Dibba remain firmly rooted to the bottom of the table on four.
