Niko Kranjcar and Roman Pavlyuchenko were the stars of the show as Tottenham triumphed against MK Dons after an eight-goal thriller at stadium:mk.

Spurs took a two goal advantage into the break after Kranjcar laid on two chances for Pavlyuchenko to convert, before the home side levelled things up after the break thanks to Luke Chadwick and Daniel Powell.

But Kranjcar soon turned creator once more, as his shot was parried into the path of a grateful Harry Kane, while the Croatian added a fourth with an absolute blooter from all of 35-yards.

However, there was still time for the Dons to snatch another back courtesy of Jabo Ibehre, before Spurs youngster Kane completed proceedings in the final minute.

The performance of Kane was a particular positive for Spurs, with the second year trainee making the most of his opportunity, having replaced Jermain Defoe late in the second-half.

Spurs technical co-ordinator Tim Sherwood was certainly impressed with the 17-year-old's contribution, and reserved special praise for Kane after the final whistle.


"Harry showed real quality when he came on," he said.

"His first goal was a real goalscorer's goal, a poacher's goal, just nicking in front of the defender and sliding the ball home.

"The second was a good finish as well. He had three chances and scored twice in 15 minutes, a good ratio.

"He's a good player and we all think he's got a future at the club."
