Fletcher got a rare start in the midfield Saturday in the 4-0 loss to Aston Villa.

Fletcher was unlucky to score as he hit the crossbar and led the team with four aerials won. Fletcher has not started since Jan. 17th and has lost his starting striker role to transfer Jermain Defoe. It will be interesting to see if they continue to start him at the midfield going forward seeing how poorly they played today. Keep an eye on the starting XI next Saturday when Sunderland travel to take on West Ham.

Fletcher scored a brace in the 3-1 win over Crystal Palace Monday.

Fletcher now has four goals in his last three games and has gotten off at least three shots in his last four matches. Fletcher is clearly in top form right now, so look for him to continue to play well against poor defenses like Leicester and Everton their next two matches.

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

After a two-goal game, Fletcher couldn't find the back of the net in this stunning scoreline. It was just a terrible day for Sunderland, who will look to bounce back next weekend against Arsenal.

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.
