Default Viral genome assembly from RNA-seq data


I'm performing a RNA-seq analysis from a virus infected plant. After mapping the Illumina Hiseq paired reads against the plant genome, I used the unmapped reads to blast the virus genome available. Once I separated virus reads from other unmapped reads I would like to assembly the virus genome. Which is the best way to do it? I used before velvet and trinity for eukaryote transcriptome assemblies but I'm not sure if I can use the same software or approach for virus.

I would appreciate someone could guide me.

Thanks a lot
