Blackburn Rovers trail Peterborough United 3-0 at the break courtesy of Dwight Gayle's half-hour hat-trick.

A Dwight Gayle hat-trick has sent Peterborough United into half time 3-0 up against Blackburn Rovers at Ewood Park.

The visitors took the lead in the 11th minute. Gayle had twice been denied by Jake Kean, but the keeper could not prevent him at the third time of asking.

Robert Olejnik then produced a good stop to deny DJ Campbell hitting back immediately.

Gayle made it two goals in two minutes with a header across goal, before completing his hat-trick just before the half-hour mark.

Jordan Rhodes could have reduced the arrears but blazed over after Olejnik had saved Scott Dann's header.

Campbell then thought that he had got one back for Rovers, only for the linesman's flag to rule his goal out.
