Andros Townsend is determined not to be remembered as a ‘one-hit wonder’ at Spurs.

Andros Townsend is determined not to be remembered as a ‘one-hit wonder’ at Spurs.

The young winger is in the squad for tonight’s Europa League play-off, second leg against Hearts at the Lane.

Andros made quite an impact on his debut last season.

Handed his chance in the FA Cup third round tie against Charlton at the Lane, Andros fizzed home a 20-yarder to open the scoring as we ran out 3-0 winners.

Having spent the rest of last season on loan at Millwall, Andros returned to first-team action in the first leg against Hearts at Tynecastle last week and set-up the fifth goal in our 5-0 win.

“It’s good to get a chance to show what I can do and if I am given the nod, the hopefully I’ll do more of the same as I did against Charlton,” he said.

“I don’t want to be remembered as a one-hit wonder, so every time I’m given a chance I need to show the manager what I can do.

“If we finish the job, there will be six group matches in the Europa League and any opportunity I get, I need to take it.”

Andros admitted he stepped onto the perfect stage at Tynecastle with us already 4-0 up.

“It was ideal, the game was open and I could do what I do best," he added. "I was involved in the fifth goal and I’d like to carry that form into Thursday night.

“I’m sure Hearts won’t like down, they will come out fighting and it will be a tough game for us.”
