Kevin Phillips reckons that Ross Stewart is just what we need to bolster our attack, when he is eventually fit to play!
Phillips said: “He’s signed for a few quid but he’s not coming with a massive load of pressure in terms of his reputation. Of course, there is always some pressure signing for Sunderland, especially given the position they’re in in terms of scoring goals. If you’re Danny Graham or Will Grigg who’s come with a reputation, they have more pressure. Stewart doesn’t need to worry about that too much. From what I’ve seen, he’s an exciting young talent. He probably hasn’t scored the goals he’d like this year so hopefully he can get back on that trail with Sunderland and give competition to Charlie Wyke up top. Or maybe they can play the pair together. But I think the signings that Sunderland have made are pretty exciting, they’ve done good business in the window. Then again, they’ve gone for attacking players but they’re conceding goals every week as well. So that’s still an area they need to work on.”
