    Not a bad article about him in WOL

    Vassell has been plagued by injury with many writing him off, but struck last-gasp Bluebirds winner against Luton

    [​IMG]


    Cardiff City's new goalscoring idol has a simple but poignant message to his doubters: Don't write me off because of my injury-plagued past.

    While Cardiff City Stadium was sent into raptures by Isaac Vassell's injury-time winner against Luton Town, for the striker it represented the first barrier broken on a long road to recovery.
    In October 2017, Vassell was at the foothills of a gruelling mountain of rehabilitation work after rupturing his ACL against Aston Villa while playing for Birmingham.

    What lay ahead was an agonising year of gym work followed by a season playing second fiddle to Lukas Jutkiewicz.

    Many Cardiff fans will have researched Vassell's modest record at Birmingham and quickly made their assessments. It was clear, especially after the departure of Bobby Reid, they were yearning for a striker with pedigree in the Championship.

    It had been reported that some clubs were put off by the player's injury record, but, if anything, that has served only to fuel his determination to be a success in the Welsh capital.

    "You hear things, you read things here and there, but ultimately, as a player, you can't let that affect you," Vassell said of other clubs losing interest.

    "You can say about my injury record but off the back of that you need to give some sort of opportunity.

    "I'm not saying I've not had the opportunities but sometimes it just doesn't work like that in football.

    "For someone to give you a chance - my rehab was fine, everything was fine - but people are going to have their worries and their doubts. But I'm an example today of people who can come back from injury and maybe it shouldn't affect your decision on someone."

    I'd luv it if he turned out to be the 20 goal striker we've been missing all these years. Luv it.

    I've scored the same number of goals for City as Gary Madine.

    It's a record I'm very proud of

    And he’s already done more running than lazy Ken did all last season in just 5 minutes of playing time
