'The stuff dreams are made of' - Spurs ace delighted for teammate

Tottenham Hotspur's Andros Townsend says that he is delighted that Harry Kane was able to bag the winner against Aston Villa.

Tottenham Hotspur's Andros Townsend says that Harry Kane is living the dream at the moment.

The 21-year-old striker is rapidly establishing himself as the major goal-threat in this Tottenham side and his goal against Aston Villa was fine reward for his good form.

Kane came off the bench to score the winner from a free-kick late on, and Towsend has praised the youngster's displays this season.

"He’s been fantastic all season," Townsend told the club's official site. "Obviously the fans were singing his name all game and for him to come on and score the winner in the last minute – it’s the stuff dreams are made of, so I think everyone’s delighted for him.”

Despite his good form, Kane has taken a while to convince Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino that he is ready for regular first-team football. 

The academy product has been used sparingly in the league, with all of his starts coming in cup competitions. He has still become Spurs' top-scorer, though, with eight goals to his name for the season, and it seems that Pochettino is finally ready to give him a vital role in the team. 

Tottenham have struggled for goals so far this season, with Emmanuel Adebayor showing no threat during his time leading the line.

A goalscorer is what the club have lacked for some time and if Kane can continue to get his name on the score-sheet then it will be a major boost for the side. 

At the moment, Spurs look short of the quality required to break into the top four, but having a regularly scoring striker will fill one of the voids in the squad. 

Kane will now be looking to firmly establish his starting place by continuing to hit the back of the net, and his next chance to do that in domestic action is likely to come this weekend when the side take on Stoke City.
