Vassell: I feel like we have been robbed a little bit

Forward Kyle Vassell spoke to the press after scoring the opener in Fleetwood Town's loss to top of the table Hull City at the KCOM Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

Vassell - who now has four goals to his name this season - bagged the first goal of the afternoon after brilliant work from Wes Burns down the right and almost had a second after deflecting in Dan Batty's strike after half-time, but the linesman deemed him to be offside.

Here's what Kyle had to say after the game:

On the game…

“It’s very frustrating to be honest with you, especially when you go back in and see that our second goal that went in off my back was onside. We should have had two, we should’ve been two nil up and it’s a completely different game at that point.

“It’s frustrating especially against top of the league when you should’ve won the game. We dominated but they are top for a reason. They have got the spirit; they’ve got the fight and I think that’s what won them the game today.

“I feel like we have been robbed a little bit, and he’s got to see that I’m onside there and we’re two nil up. You’d like to think that with our pace on the counter with Wes [Burns], myself and even Baz [McKay], we’d try and nick another one on the break.”

On his fourth Fleetwood Town goal…

“There was a similar situation last Saturday and he got an ear full from me, where he [Wes Burns] could have played it round the back and instead I think he could it back. He said ‘I didn’t even look, 'I just fizzed it around the back' so that’s where I like to be in the six-yard box tapping them in.

“I think we’ve been in all the big games we’ve been in. Potentially you could say our problem has been the teams in the bottom three. We have got a couple of wins in the last week, but we haven’t dominated. We’ve got some unbelievable ability in the dressing room.”
