AVB praises Tottenham attacking threat Townsend

Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas has heaped praise on Andros Townsend following another impressive display.

The 22-year old winger scored the opening goal as Spurs beat Aston Villa 2-0 at Villa Park but it was his overall attacking threat that really pleased the boss.

"I think he's done what he has been doing excellently," he told Sky Sports.

"He takes the team forward, and he has the ability to drive and jump the man whenever he has the ball.

"He is always a threat and teams have started to be more aware of his strengths. He started not really well, but improved during the game."
