'My experience helps promotion chances'

1 March 2013

Jordan Stewart expresses his delight at signing for Coventry City...

Coventry City's new signing Jordan Stewart hopes his experience can help the Sky Blues achieve promotion from League One.

The 30-year old signed a contract until the end of the season with City as Carsley looks to bolster the squad for the last 11 games of the season.

Stewart, who left Notts County in January and will wear the number 31 shirt, wants to be part of a successful City side and hopes he can gain a place in the side.

The defender said: "I am really happy to sign for City as being from the Midlands and playing against Coventry in youth sides, you always knew this was a massive club.

"Obviously, at the minute, the club isn't where it should be but I hope to be part of the team which can turn that around.

"This is the most important part of the season so I hope my experience can help the side and the younger players, as the club looks to get in the play-offs.

"There is a lot of quality at the club and that is why I signed. It is a great opportunity for me and when I get a chance in the side, I have to make sure I take it."

The former Watford player is looking forward to linking up with Leon Clarke and believes the squad has the quality needed to gain promotion.

He continued: "The club has a lot of quality throughout the squad as there is a good mixture here. I shouldn't have problems settling in as I know Leon Clarke from Birmingham.

"Also, I know Gary McSheffrey from when we used to play each other in the youth team days. I know James Bailey as well from Derby County so it is exciting to come and progress with them.

"Leon (Clarke) has scored 20 goals already this season so it will be good to come and play with him. With a striker in that kind of form and if you keep a clean sheet, you've always got a chance of three points.

"It is a tricky league though and anyone can beat anyone so it will be difficult for the side but I am sure we can bring success to the club."
