Although it took a penalty shoot-out for City to eventually edge past Rotherham United at the KC Stadium on Saturday, Stewart insists that things are coming together nicely under new manager Steve Bruce and believes that a good season is in store.
“We’re obviously pleased to get through to the next round of the cup because we went out early last season,” said Stewart.
“It would have been nice to have done it without going to extra time and penalties, but we’re through and we’ll move on now.
“With a new manager, it will take a bit of time to get used to the way he wants us to play but it’s starting to come together nicely and we want this season to be a good one for us.
“There are subtle changes, but nothing major. The manager has come in with a philosophy and we all know our role within the team.”
Stewart is enjoying his football at the moment having got a full pre-season under his belt and was one of the Tigers’ top performers at the weekend.
With the new league season set to get underway with a home game against Brighton & Hove Albion next Saturday, the speedy winger is keen to show his best form.
“I really enjoyed Saturday and I knew it was important for me to play well and show the manager that I want to be in his team.
“A full pre-season has been good for me and I feel fitter, stronger and more confident at the moment.”
