ALLOA star Ross Stewart says he has his team mates to thank for his prolific start to his Wasps career.

The striker has scored in each of the three games he has played since joining on loan from St Mirren, and revealed the rest of the squad have helped him to settle in at the Indodrill Stadium.

His latest strike came against his old club Albion Rovers last Saturday, and the forward is delighted with his start to life in the Wee County.

Stewart told Advertiser Sport: "I've got some great memories at Albion and I still know a lot of the boys there, but it is always nice to score against your old club.

"It's not often you get the chance to do it. Of course, I'll take a goal against anybody, but it's always nice when it comes against your old team.

"When Garry Fleming picked it up I just peeled off the defender because I knew he would put it in a great area. I just had to bring it down and hit the target, and thankfully it went in.

"I know I've got three goals in three games but it actually could have been more. I'm delighted to have hit the ground running and started scoring goals so quickly though.

"Hopefully I can keep this run going into the next few games."

He added: "The boys have made it so easy for me to settle in. They've been really welcoming and that has really taken the pressure off.

"The gaffer knew me before and knew my game, and he told me to just come in and be positive.

"He said he will never get on at me for trying to be positive and make things happen. Sometimes it comes off and sometimes it doesn't, but hopefully it works more often than not.

"I always try to get into the box and into the right areas because I know I've got team-mates who will give me good service.

"Hopefully I can keep improving on my performances. When you're scoring goals you gain confidence, and that in turn will help with other aspects of my game.

"As a striker your entire game is based around scoring goals but I'm hoping I can bring a bit more than that to this team.

"I'm looking to bring other players into the game a bit more and set them up for a few goals themselves."

The Wasps had to come from behind to claim three points from last Saturday's encounter, and Stewart believes they reaped the rewards of responding to Rovers' opener immediately.

He said: "We found ourselves a little bit unfortunate to go behind but it was a great goal from their point of view.

"It was important for us to bounce back quickly at that stage, and once we got that goal we knew we could kick on.

"They came back into it after we got the second, but we were always dangerous and the third goal killed the game.

"Every game in this league is hard so when you get three points you take it whatever way it comes.

"Albion came and made it difficult as we knew they would, so we are really pleased with the three points."
