Darius Vassell eager to build on win over Doncaster

Leicester City striker Darius Vassell says the Foxes should see Saturday's 5-1 drubbing of Doncaster Rovers as a stepping stone to climb up the league.

The Foxes turned in a stylish display at the Walkers Stadium but are still only in 13th spot in the Championship.

Vassell told BBC Radio Leicester: "It was a great win and team performance.

"They are a good footballing side and have good attacking players and to come away with a 5-1 win against them is a great way to get confidence."

Vassell grabbed his first Foxes goal in seven games in the victory but said he is more concerned about building up his match fitness, having not played much football since the start of the season.

"I've broken my duck and hopefully the goal will be the first of many but I've been more worried about my fitness than anything," he said.

"It's always nice to score but to finish a match and play 90 minutes it what I'm aiming for and hopefully that's around the corner."
