Bohemians are currently bottom of the table, having lost all four opening games, but Kane told the FAI that she feels people should view Bohemians in terms of their improvement.
Kane told the FAI that it is far too early to make judgments on a squad that only came together a couple of months ago.
Kane knows all about the struggles in this League from her time with Kilkenny United, but the Tullamore native believes things are different with Bohs and sees plenty of reasons to be upbeat.
"If you look at our first four games, we have come up against the top four teams from last season so we knew what we were going in against and how difficult it would be for us as a new team," she said.
"But with each game you can see improvement and hopefully in our next couple of games we can push for a win. None of the teams in the League this year are weak so it's really all about the game on the day and how each team performs.
"We play Treaty United next and they had a big result in their last game by beating DLR Waves. I think that result shows that any team can take points off each other and that is what we are aiming for.
"I think we are getting more comfortable playing together and we are starting to gel more as a team."
Certainly the statistics indicate an upward curve for Bohs with 33 per cent possession and 41 per cent of duels won in their opening game away to Wexford Youths compared to 39 per cent possession and 48 per cent duels won in their most recent outing against Peamount United.
Bohs have also scored two goals - with Kane getting one of those - and with their passing accuracy staying around the 55 per cent mark, they are starting to make more of an impact on games.
Kane admitted that manager Sean Byrne is the driving force behind their steady progress with his meticulous preparation, his attention to detail and his passion rubbing off on each of the players.
As they enter into Week 5, Bohs are looking up the table feeling that they can get that first win. For Kane, it is simply only a matter of time.
