The on-loan Chelsea man’s strike in the home defeat at the hands of Derby County – his first competitive goal for the Tigers – gained 55% of the fans’ vote on Twitter to claim the award ahead of strikes from Jackson Irvine and Jarrod Bowen against Ipswich Town and Wigan Athletic respectively.
Happy to collect the gong, the 25-year-old is now looking to push on in front of goal as he looks to achieve the target he set himself in pre-season.
“It was nice to get off the mark in the game against Derby County,” he said.
“It was a fantastic ball from Evandro and thankfully I was able to get on the end of it and put it away.
“You don’t want the wait for the first one to go on too long, so from that point of view, it was great to get it out of the way.
“I set myself a target at the start of the season and hopefully, now, I can push on and achieve that number come the end of the season.”
Saturday’s defeat away at Sheffield United left Nigel Adkins’ side at the foot of the Championship table, having picked up just eight points from their opening 12 games of the campaign.
Despite his disappointment at the Tigers’ current league placing, Kane believes it is too early in the season to read too much into it and insists everyone in the camp is fully focused on turning things around.
“The Championship is a difficult league and one that’s very, very competitive,” he added.
“But, sometimes, you just need that little bit of luck to go your way as well. We’ve had spells in some games where we’ve played very well but just haven’t managed to capitalise on that.
“We can’t allow ourselves to get frustrated when that happens though. It’s all part and parcel of the game and we just have to remain focused in order to get the job done.
“There are plenty more games to go in the season and obviously we’re determined to see an upturn in results as we look to move up the table.
“You don’t want to forget about the table. But, right now, it is a little bit too early to judge. We would be higher if we had drawn a couple of these games and won another.
“It’s disappointing when you look at the table because I do believe we should be higher in the league, but we’re working hard to turn things around and string together a positive run of form.”
