Daniel Stewart says no one will want to play his Long Buckby side right now.

Stewart believes the Bucks are building up a head of steam as they bid to secure their first UCL Premier Division victory of the season.

That makes them a dangerous proposition, with opposition teams wary of being the first to lose to the Station Road side.

Peterborough Northern Star just edged past Stewart’s men last weekend and the manager believes the 15-game winless league run is close to reaching its conclusion.

“We’ve been vastly improved of late and we’re getting closer (to that first win),” said Stewart.

“I’m of the belief that the fact we’re improving means nobody wants to play us at the moment.

“The Peterborough Northern Star management said teams will start fearing us and they gave us a lot of credit.

“We’re a potential banana skin for anyone and we can use that fear to our advantage.”

Buckby, who were beaten 3-2 by Northern Star, are currently six points adrift at the bottom of the standings going into Saturday’s game at Wellingborough Town.

But Stewart is paying little attention to the league table, instead preferring to focus on performances rather than points.

“I don’t take much interest in the table,” he said.

“I’m more looking at individuals and the development of the team.

“I knew it wouldn’t be easy with a young squad and me being a young gaffer, but we’ve been getting stronger.”

And on Saturday’s trip to Wellingborough, Stewart said: “It will be a tight game.

“We’ve got a couple of players suspended and one injured but there’s every chance we can take something from the game.”
