Steve Davis says the challenge is there for on-loan centre-half
Steve Davis says that his new loan signing Anthony Stewart will have to earn his place in the first team squad. Stewart has initially signed on loan from League Two side Wycombe Wanderers but he is eager to win himself a longer contract in January.
Davis is keen to assess the credentials of the 22-year-old before making a final decision.
Steve told the club’s official web-site: “We wanted a longer look at Anthony and give ourselves a bigger window to allow us to do that.
“Anthony knows he has a fight to get into the squad and then into the team. He knows that he has come in down the pecking order and it is up to him to work his way through it. He has to show that he is better than those ahead of him.
“He has a couple of months to show that potential and earn himself an extension here.
He added: “He has settled in fine. He has been struggling with his hamstring of late but I think that is just down to a bit of fatigue and getting used to training and playing on a regular basis again.”
