Townsend showing pleases Tottenham's AVB to no end

The performance of Andros Townsend in Tottenham's 5-0 victory over Dinamo Tbilisi on Thursday did not go unnoticed by manager Andre Villas-Boas.

The 22-year old winger, who spent part of last season on loan with QPR, scored the opening goal and provided assists for Paulinho and Roberto Soldado as Spurs dismantled the Georgians in Europa League qualifying and his impact impressed his boss.

"Andros has been working well in training, so we felt it was time to give him an opportunity and he did very well," said AVB.

"If we have the type of performance we had to today (from him) we can always count him.

"For all the young players we are bringing through the competition they face is extremely difficult and in my opinion, when you overcome that type of opposition you can only become a top player.

"He is doing it the right way. He seems very focused after last years' experience (with QPR)."
