Harry Kane said his Leicester City debut at Blackpool has whetted his appetite for more.

The striker joined City only on Thursday, but he started in a three-man attack at Bloomfield Road.

Although City had to settle for a goalless draw, Kane said he was impressed with his new team-mates, especially fellow strikers Chris Wood and David Nugent.

"They are two great players to play with and I thought we worked well together, coming off the flanks and then playing up top together," he said.

"It was hard on that pitch but I thought we all played well together.

"We had the better chances but, unfortunately, we didn't take them. It was a tough match, a big battle on a bad pitch, but we kept a great clean sheet. We should be pleased.

"Everyone has been great and made me feel very welcome. It is good to get my chance.

"Unfortunately I didn't get a goal and we didn't get the three points, but it was a good experience and I am looking forward to the next game now."

Kane said he hopes to play a big part for City in their push for promotion during his loan spell from Tottenham Hotspur.

"I want to get experience, get more games under my belt and score some goals," he said.

"If Leicester can push for promotion as well, that would be great experience to take on in my career.

"It helps a lot to play the games and get used to the crowds and the pitches, and get used to players. I think I can bring something to the team and they can help me."

Kane added: "It will be another tough game on Tuesday (at home to Blackburn), but every game is tough in this division.

"We will look forward to it and try to get a win, and push for promotion."

Kane was brought down inside the Blackpool penalty area for the game's key moment, but the 21-year-old insists it was a penalty.

Unfortunately for City, Wood could not convert it.

"I got the touch in front of two players and I felt I got clipped," said Kane.

"The ref gave it and it is his decision.

"Unfortunately it didn't go in, but that is football. We have to move on to the game on Tuesday."
