Stewart: It's my best

14 December 2015

Midfielder comments on injury time free kick that set up grandstand win.

Cameron Stewart said that the Doncaster Rovers dressing room was “ecstatic” after coming from 2-1 down in injury time to defeat Crewe Alexandra at the Keepmoat Stadium.

The Ipswich Town loanee struck a sweet free kick for his fourth goal of the season for what looked to be a point. However there was still time for Andy Williams to bag an unlikely winner.

“I think everyone’s ecstatic in the dressing room. To win the game 3-2 and in that manner – with it being so late –we’re buzzing and so happy to have the three points,” he said.

“I was itching to get on and I’d like to think that every game I’ve come on I’ve played my part and to score the goal and set us on our way to a win was another one of those.

“It’s the best free kick I’ve ever hit. As soon as it was given I said to Conor (Grant) that I was having it and I’ve put it in the top corner.”

Stewart’s performances from the bench have seen him have the desired effect in recent games as Rovers recorded their sixth win in eight games but he stressed he won’t be banging on the door of manager Darren Ferguson.

“I think hopefully my performances will speak for themselves,” admitted Stewart.

“All I can do is my bit and keep in his eye line and I’d like think that I am playing well when I come on and it’s hard to get a start and I respect that the boys are playing well and I’m just going to have to wait for my chance.

“Even before the result you could see the belief and confidence coming back to the squad. Game by game we’re getting better.

“If the gaffer was to ask me to stay then its something that I would think about. It’s a conversation that’s not really been had yet and we’ll have to see what January brings.

“I think you can see now that there is a bubble coming back around the place, everyone’s happy and the feeling when you go in on a Monday morning when you’ve won compared to when you’ve lost is second to none!”
