Kane unperturbed by missed chances
Harry Kane will not waste any time dwelling on missed chances as the on-loan Tottenham striker looks to fire Norwich into the last 16 of the Capital One Cup when they face Doncaster on Wednesday.

The England Under-19 forward joined the Canaries on deadline day to boost his chances of regular Barclays Premier League football after Spurs moved for American international Clint Dempsey.
Kane was handed his Norwich debut as a substitute against West Ham, but spurned the chance to become an instant hit when he scuffed his shot after being played clean through on goal in the closing moments.
Kane, though, is not about to let that bother him as the 19-year-old prepares to lead the Norwich attack against the npower League One side at Carrow Road on Wednesday.
"That is football - everyone misses chances. I have just to keep getting in those positions and then take the next one," said Kane, who had productive loan spells at Leyton Orient and Millwall in the past two seasons.
"You just have to get on with it. The quicker you put it out of your mind and move on, the quicker you can take the next one.
"I have proved I can score goals with the two loan spells I have been on, now I want to do that in the Premier League.
"I came here to get some minutes under my belt and so tomorrow night will be a great chance to prove myself to the gaffer to try to push for a Premier League spot.
"We want to go out there and do the job against Doncaster to get through to the next round, if we play the way we can, then we should get the result.
"If we can get a win, then hopefully we can kick on and take that into the Premier League."
It was only a few weeks ago when Spurs manager Andre Villas-Boas insisted Kane was "in our plans" and "who we trust for the future", before those were quickly switched once the move for Dempsey transpired.
Kane, though, intends to make the most of the chance ahead this season with Norwich, who at the moment are struggling for goals in the Premier League.
"It was all kind of last minute," he said. "I was number three striker at Spurs, then on deadline day, they signed Clint Dempsey.
"When I knew that was happening, the manager said it would be good to get some games out on loan, so that is when the deal got done.
"I want to be playing week in and week out in the Premier League, so Norwich was a great opportunity for me.
"It is the next step, it is what I want to be doing."
Norwich manager Chris Hughton openly admits he will "make wholesale changes" on Wednesday, much as he did for the visit of Scunthorpe in the last round.
However, that is not just because the Canaries will be facing Liverpool on Saturday, when they will aim to kickstart a so-far winless Premier League campaign.
"I only do that because at this moment the squad we have allows us to do it," said Hughton, who will also give recent signings goalkeeper Mark Bunn, midfielder Alexander Tettey and fit-again England under-21 international Jacob Butterfield the chance to impress.
"There isn't anybody playing on Wednesday who does not have good experience and who is not a strong player.
"It is a game we very much want to win, and we just have to make sure we go about it in the same way as the previous round."
