Harry Kane has sent his support to the Tottenham team ahead of the clash against Middlesbrough on Saturday.

The 23-year-old suffered an ankle injury in last week’s clash against Sunderland and was ruled out of the match with a long injury lay-off expected.

New signing Vincent Janssen has come into the side in the clash at the Riverside Stadium to replace the England international.

Kane took to Twitter before the game and via his personal Twitter account he wished his team-mates well, while asking them to deliver the three points.

Kane had started all five of Spurs’ Premier League matches before the injury.

However, he had begun the new season in poor form with just two goals from his opening five matches after a less than impressive European Championship’s showing with England.

Despite their striker’s poor form, Tottenham had begun the season well.

They currently sit in fourth place, after Manchester United leapfrogged them in their 4-1 win over Leicester earlier in the afternoon, but Spurs can move above them with a result against Boro.

Mauricio Pochettino will be keen for his team to continue their run, and will see the match against a newly promoted side as a good opportunity to do so.
