St Johnstone and Queen of the South loans

After joining the fray as a sub for the injured Stephen Dobbie, he scored the winner for Queens in their 4–3 victory in the semi finals of the Scottish Cup against Aberdeen to take Queens to the final for the first time in their 89-year history. He also set up Paul Burns to put QoS 2-1 up in the same game. Stewart also scored in an earlier round against Greenock Morton and made a late substitute appearance in the final against Rangers.
