The Queens Park Rangers striker was full of praise for Tottenham Hotspur’s young and talented goalscorer.

Queens Park Rangers striker Charlie Austin has praised Tottenham Hotspur forward Harry Kane in his blog for Paddy Power.

The youngster has been in exceptional form throughout the season, leading the goal-scoring charts and also being the leading English scoring table ahead of Austin, who is the second highest.

It is arguably Kane’s performances that have given his side Tottenham a fighting chance of qualifying for the Champions League this season, with his goals propelling his team into the race between as many as six teams for the highly coveted final two qualification places.

It was also Kane’s two goals, which saw his side to victory in Saturday’s only Premier League game, a clash between Tottenham and Austin’s QPR side, and the forward has now praised the youngster saying he was the difference on the day.

"Harry Kane has been in exceptional form this season,” wrote Austin. “That brace makes it eight goals in six league games and when you’re on that run you just want the games to keep coming.”

According to Austin, Kane’s fine performance this season are down to his flowing confidence and self-belief he has in his abilities, which are the kind of things that every striker wants.

The youngster hasn’t looked out of place throughout his breakout season, often trying things that others wouldn’t and ultimately succeeding, such is his level of self belief at the minute.

As said by Austin, that type of confidence can only benefit the team as a whole.

“He is a great example of this self-belief,” added the forward. “He’s confident going in to games, and he’s confident when he’s front of goal that he’s going to score. That’s the kind of confidence that a striker really wants and it will inevitably benefit the team.”
