Palermo captain Fabrizio Miccoli scores a hat-trick on his first-team return to help his team win their first match of the season.

Palermo secured their first win of the season thanks to an inspired performance from returning captain Fabrizio Miccoli.

Under-fire manager Gian Piero Gasperini started Miccoli ahead of Abel Hernandez, and his decision got an instant reward on 13 minutes when the skipper curled in a delightful free kick to open the scoring.

Cheivo pegged their hosts back before half time thanks to a goal from Marco Rigoni.

Miccoli was the star again as he restored Palermo's lead on the hour with a superb solo run and finish.

Palermo's joy quickly turned to nerves minutes later when Franco Brienza was dismissed for a second bookable offence.

Anxiety was lifted for Gasperini ten minutes from time when Miccoli found Luigi Giorgi in space, and he calmly slotted home to make the game safe.

A marvellous Miccoli performance was completed before the final whistle as he completed his hat-trick with an incredible volley from range.

An important result for Palermo lifts the pressure on Gasperini and cements Miccoli's place as a hero on the terraces in Sicily.
