Stewart: Excited To See What We Can Do

3 February 2021

Kevin Stewart is looking forward to seeing what the second half of the season holds, with the new midfielder playing the full 90 minutes in Blackpool’s 2-0 win over Northampton.

The 27-year-old joined Blackpool in the final week of January, and has since played twice for the Seasiders in the victories over Wigan Athletic and Northampton.

“It’s been a good start for me since I’ve been here,” the former Tottenham and Liverpool player said.

“I’ve really enjoyed being back out there on the pitch. I’ve had two wins and two clean sheets so far whilst I’ve been here, so I can’t wait to see what we can do as a team between now and the end of the season.”

Stewart, who was unfortunate to not find the back of the net in Tuesday’s win over Northampton after hitting the post with an effort from just inside the penalty area, feels the win over the Cobblers was a hard-fought victory which Blackpool more than deserved.

“I think it was a difficult match at times, and they made it difficult for us to impose outr style on them,” he admitted.

“Even though it was a scrappy game, I still felt we were in control. I don’t think we were under too much pressure, and that comes from the backline. I thought they were magnificent for the match and dealt with all of the issues that Northampton put at them from set-pieces and long throw-ins.

“It was pleasing to get the victory and I’m excited to see what’s to come here.”
