Andros Townsend: Tottenham Hotspur teammate Harry Kane ‘has been fantastic all season’

Andros Townsend showers praise on Harry Kane following the striker’s performance for Tottenham Hotspur against Brighton & Hove Albion in the League Cup on Wednesday.

Tottenham Hotspur winger Andros Townsend has been singing the praises of teammate Harry Kane.

England Under-21 international Kane was on target for Spurs against Brighton & Hove Albion in the fourth round of the League Cup on Wednesday.

The 21-year-old scored the second goal for the North London club in their 2-0 victory at White Hart Lane when he tucked in a rebound after Roberto Soldado’s shot had been saved in the 74th minute.

It was Kane’s eighth goal in 11 games and led Townsend to praise his compatriot.

Kane has been largely underused by Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino so far this season, but the youngster has delivered the goods when given the chance.

The youngster scored a truly brilliant hat-trick against Asteras Tripolis in the Europa League Group C at White Hart Lane last week, but he was surprisingly left on the substitutes’ bench against Newcastle United in the Premier League at the weekend

With Roberto Soldado and Emmanuel Adebayor both lacking consistency and yet to fully convince, it is high time that Pochettino starts putting more faith in Kane.

Tottenham are back in action on Sunday when they take on Aston Villa at Villa Park in the Premier League, and Kane must be handed a start.
