KANE IS ABLE AS SPURS GO SIXTH

QPR ..............1 TOT­TEN­HAM 2

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO RESULTS -

HOT-SHOT Harry Kane struck twice as Tot­ten­ham boosted their hopes of Cham­pi­ons League qual­i­fi­ca­tion with a nar­row win at Loftus Road.

Kane met An­dros Townsend’s deep free-kick to head the vis­i­tors in front be­fore the in­ter­val, be­com­ing the first Spurs player since the in­cep­tion of the Pre­mier League to score in six con­sec­u­tive away games.

Char­lie Austin had hit the bar in a fine start for the home side, but they were curs­ing their luck when Kane dou­bled Spurs’ ad­van­tage in the sec­ond half be­fore San­dro scored late on against his for­mer em­ploy­ers to set up a grand­stand fin­ish.

But Spurs held firm to record their sec­ond win in four days and move up to sixth in the ta­ble, just three points be­hind fourth-placed Manch­ester United.

QPR, mean­while, missed the chance to climb out of the bot­tom three and re­main three points adrift of safety.
