Spurs lost 1-0 at home to Newcastle on Sunday despite dominating for large periods of the match.
When asked if a lack of goals was starting to concern the players, Townsend replied: "If we are winning 1-0 then we will take that because it is three points but if we are losing it is a problem.
"We are a relatively new side, we are a young side and we are still getting to know each other and learn each other's games. Goals will come I'm sure of it - hopefully sooner rather than later."
