The Tigers had picked up 34 points from a possible 45 – with ten wins, four draws and just one defeat – in HU3 before slipping to back-to-back losses at the hands of Blackburn Rovers and Bristol City.
And the importance of securing a return to winning ways in front of the black and amber faithful is not lost on 26-year-old Stewart.
“It’s an important match for us because we’re going into it having lost our last two home games,” he said.
“That was a big disappointment for us because, prior to that, we’d been really good at the KCOM Stadium – both with our performances and results.
“It’s really important to bounce back and become dominant at home again and that’s what we’ll look to do this afternoon.
“We’ve trained hard ahead of the game and everyone in the camp is fully focused on the job we have to do as we go in search of the three points.”
