The Black Cats have been left short of forward options due to Nathan Broadhead’s hamstring injury, which will leave the Everton loanee sidelined for at least three months.
Harris and Kimpioka, both 21, have been included in recent matchday squads, with the latter coming off the bench to score against Sheffield Wednesday.
When asked if the pair could make an impact in the second half of the campaign, Stewart, who is the top scorer in League One with 15 goals this season, told the Echo: “I think they have shown that.
