READ | Vassell takes confidence from Tigers clash

6 January 2020

Despite the Millers falling to defeat against Hull City in the Emirates FA Cup Third Round at the weekend, Kyle Vassell found the net in style with an ambitious half-volley that did pull his side ahead before half-time.

The forward now has a return of two goals from the last three games, the first being an overhead kick during the 4-0 thumping of AESSEAL New York Stadium, with that then followed up by the most recent strike versus the Tigers. 
 
"Matt Olosunde had thrown one into me a few minutes earlier and I set the ball back to him, but I realised the opposition player didn't get that tight to me. With that in mind, I thought I'd suck him in and let it go over my shoulder," Vassell said, recollecting his finish. 
 
"I've hit one like that before in fairness, but for it to hit the bar and post before going in, I'll definitely take that."
 
Unfortunately that wasn't enough to prevent the Millers from exiting the FA Cup as their East Yorkshire counterparts ran out as 3-2 victors courtesy of a last-gasp winner from Tom Eaves, but Vassell insists that there were plenty of positives to take 
 
With his recent form in front of goal at the forefront of his mind, Vassell believes he can take confidence from the last few displays, and he is determined to add to the tally of three goals that he already has to his name this term.
 
"In fairness, I'll take any goal that I can get, but it's been tough for me so far this season and I've scored nowhere near as many as I should've done or that I'm capable of," he added. 
 
"That's probably because I've not been letting enough shots go with my left and right foot. After the nature of the goal against Hull, that's something I will keep doing now because you never know what will happen.
 
"It's a team game and the performance we gave against Championship opposition was brilliant because I thought we were the better team for large spells. We fight together and it's a great bunch of lads, so we move on and go again."
