Keane is on a remarkable run, scoring 25 goals in his last 34 Spurs games to make it near impossible for new head coach Juande Ramos to drop him.
"Earlier in the season I missed a couple of chances and it played on my mind, so it's nice to get a couple of goals recently," he said.
"You want to nick a goal here and there and hopefully the gaffer will see you.
"Keano has had a fantastic start to the season. It's me, Berba and Jermain fighting for the second spot. I will keep chipping away and hopefully it will be me."
Ramos has already imposed his personality on his new squad - cracking jokes with his limited English - and he has also focused on raising fitness levels.
"He's come in and changed a few things," said Bent.
"Everyone is looking forward and relishing the challenge of moving up the league."
