The Crystal Palace man hopes Roy Hodgson sticks with his front two when they host Tottenham Hotspur at the weekend.
It has been a slow start to the season for Crystal Palace, as shown by the weekend's goal vs Chelsea being their first from open play for four games.
Roy Hodgson took over a side that was struggling badly last year but turned them into a very promising side - although they've struggled to match that potential this year.
But Sunday's game saw Hodgson return to a system that served them so well: a forward partnership of Wilfried Zaha and Andros Townsend.
And if the Palace boss needed a reminder of its potency, Townsend provided it with a 53rd-minute goal.
It remains to be seen if Hodgson sticks with the duo when the team hosts Tottenham Hotspur this weekend but his number 10 clearly hopes he does.
“I feel like we [Townsend and Zaha] trouble defences," said Townsend, quoted in the Evening Standard.
"Any time I have been given the opportunity to play up there, I have really enjoyed it.
"Maybe we are not the tallest or the strongest but I think we link-up well. Hopefully, if we are given the nod again we can cause more trouble and score more goals.”
Christian Benteke has been handed more opportunities, too, although he failed to find the back of the net before his injury lay-off.
While Zaha is undoubtedly the main man at Palace, Townsend has immediately proven that he can help provide the additional threat needed - and that has given Hodgson a decision to make against Spurs.
