Stewart: The Buzz Is Back

16 October 2015

JORDAN Stewart admits that the buzz he gets from playing football is back after scoring in a development game at Bristol Rovers earlier this week.

The former Glentoran man has struggled with homesickness since signing for the Town but says that he is now settled in Swindon.

“I’ve definitely got that buzz back, “he admitted. “I think I struggled for a while - probably for the last month but I’m back now and I’m more focused on my football and hopefully I’ll be able to push on.

“I’ve played it up in my head a bit – it’s probably worse in my head than it is in reality. Now that I’ve got my head around it, I’ll be completely fine. The first month a lot of people say is the hardest so now I’m probably over that, I’m back here and settled now and I can kick on.”

Stewart also hailed his teammates’ role in helping to ease the transition to life at SN1.

“All the boys are brilliant,” he said. “They always have been. That was never the issue, it was just myself was the issue. Every one of the boys is fantastic, it’s just hard when you first move away from home. Hopefully I’m over that now though.”

The youngster scored the winning goal for Swindon in a development fixture at Bristol Rovers in midweek and declared that he was glad to get on the scoresheet.

“I haven’t played many games over the past few months,” he said. “I just want to get a few games in and enjoy myself. It’s always nice to score a goal even in a development game. I just need to get my match fitness up and push myself into the first team so as many development games as I can get will always help me. I enjoyed the game that was the main thing.”

With Town currently missing a number of key first team members, Stewart is hoping to stake a claim for a place in the starting XI, starting at Millwall on Saturday.

“There’s a lot of injuries at the minute,” he said. “If I can push on and get a bit of fitness back and get a chance hopefully I’ll be able to take that chance.”
