Striker out to secure victory against Doncaster Rovers

CITY’S deadline day loan signing Harry Kane is hoping that a Capital One Cup victory over Doncaster Rovers on Wednesday night can help Chris Hughton’s side get back to winning ways in the Barclays Premier League.

The striker joined City on a season-long loan deal from Tottenham Hotspur in on August 31, and made his City debut as a substitute in the 0-0 draw with West Ham United at Carrow Road.

City Manager Hughton revealed that the 19-year-old Kane is likely to feature for the Canaries against Rovers in the third round on Wednesday, and after facing them whilst on loan to Millwall last season, Kane is looking forward to the match.

He told  “This game is a good chance for us to kick-start the winning habit, and if we get a win tomorrow, then we can take that into the Premier League.

“They’ve got a good side and they’re doing well this season. We’ve just got to keep focused and go into the game playing the way we can and hopefully we’ll get the result. 

“All the players want to win and this is a great chance to get through to the next round and we’ll go from there. 

“At Millwall we played Doncaster last season. We were both fighting a relegation battle back then and there was a lot on that game. They were really tough, but hopefully we can get the result.

“I’ve proven that I can score goals during the two loan spells I’ve been on, and now I want to score goals in the Premier League. That’s the next step, and hopefully if I can progress, I can go on from there.”

Kane revealed that he is settled well into life with the squad, and is confident that he and his fellow strikers can start to turn chances into goals.

The striker himself missed a late chance against West Ham, but was quick to put it to the back of his mind, adding: “That’s football. Everybody misses from time to time and I’ve just got to keep going and try to get into those positions and take the next chance. 

“Whichever one or two strikers play, I think we’ve all got goals in us and as long as we keep creating chances, we’ll put some away.

“We’re keeping focus and we know that we’re creating chances which is important, and we’ll soon put them away. Maybe we just need a bit of luck, but I’m sure once a couple go in, then more will follow.

“They are a great bunch of lads here, a really tight group, and everybody gets on with everyone. Hopefully we’ve got a good long season ahead of us and we can move forward.”
