Shame about Townsend.

So it was positive to see our youth system is doing something good for the kids, well at least one anyway, as Andros Townsend made his full debut in the lilywhite. But he wasn't there to just make up the numbers, a brilliant performance was capped off with a stunning strike on 49 minutes that even Tommy would've been proud of. Jermain grabbing a brace to send us to Craven Cottage in the 4th round.

It was good to see another product of the youth team come through and playing well. It's almost becoming a habit, with Danny Rose sending us nuts with his volley against the Arse last season. But still, with Bale and Lennon on either wing for us and with both still yet to reach 24, chances for Andros in the long run may still be limited. A few injuries here and there may see the youngster involved in Premiership action although a run of starts is about as likely as Chelsea are to win the League this year.

It's brilliant to see Andros showing no fear and looking like a regular in a team full of stars, although, it's unfortunate that his progression may be hindered with two wingers who have made the position at Spurs their own and don't look likely to give it up any time soon. Competition shouldn't be a bad thing and hopefully Mr. Townsend will continue to push for his place in the side over the next few seasons.

This boy could be another star in the making.
