Fletcher got off three shots in the 8-0 loss to Southampton on Saturday.

Fletcher had two goals and an an assist in a 3-1 win over Stoke City on Saturday.

Fletcher looked fantastic and was the talliesmen Saturday that Sunderland have been looking for this season. He has always been a goal-poacher type of striker and if things are falling for him like they did Saturday, he's due to have big games.

Fletcher, who has missed the last four games due to an ankle injury, may be able to return for Sunderland's final match of the season, the Hartlepool Mail reports.

Sunderland are facing an uphill climb out of the relegation zone, but have kept the door open for Fletcher to return if they need a win on the last day of the season. However, it's looking unlikely that that will be the case, which means Fletcher may be done for the season.

Fletcher suffered an ankle injury during last weekend's match against Crystal Palace, and he will not play this weekend against Norwich City, Chronicle Live reports.

The severity of the injury hasn't been determined yet, but manager Gus Poyet indicated that he thought Fletcher could miss a few weeks. If he does, Jozy Altidore's spot in the starting XI gets even firmer.

Fletcher (calf) is expected to train Tuesday and could play Saturday against Arsenal, the Daily Mail reports.

Manager Gus Poyet said he would like for Fletcher to be fit for Arsenal, although he didn't say he'd be back in the starting XI. He has not played since suffering his injury back on January 29, and if he's unable to play Saturday, he will be expected back for the Capital One Cup final against Manchester City the following weekend.

Sunderland manager Gus Poyet confirmed that Fletcher is fit to face Fulham on Saturday. "[Steven] is perfect, he trained [Thursday] with no problems at all."

Fletcher picked up a knock during Tuesday's Capital One Cup win over Manchester United, but has recovered quickly enough to be ready for Fulham. The 26-year old striker has three league goals this season, including one against Cardiff City back on December 28.

Fletcher has recovered from a virus and returned to training, according to the Hartlepool Mail.

Now that he's back in training, Fletcher is expected to be available for Saturday's Premier League match against Norwich City. He has two goals in 12 appearances this season, although he's alternated between starting and coming off the bench in each of the last four matches.

Fletcher suffered a dislocated shoulder during Saturday's match against West Brom and could miss a number of months, the Shields Gazette reports.

Fletcher's Premier League debut was set back a number of weeks with an ankle injury and now the new concern will keep him out even longer. He scored in his season-debut back on September 1 against Crystal Palace and played twice more after that, although with little results. Jozy Altidore will likely step back into his place, after doing so when he was initially down with the ankle problem.
