Fletcher wins monthly award

Sunderland striker Steven Fletcher has been named the Premier League's Player of the Month for September.

• City breeze past Sunderland

Fletcher, 25, has got off to a blistering start for Sunderland following his £12 million summer move from Wolverhampton Wanderers, scoring five goals in his first four Premier League appearances.

Furthermore, those goals against Swansea City, West Ham United, Liverpool and Wigan Athletic all came with his first five shots on target.

That run only came to an end on Saturday when Sunderland were beaten 3-0 away against champions Manchester City in their first defeat of the season.

Fletcher said: "I'm obviously pleased with the award but results are more important. To stay unbeaten in September was a real positive for the lads and I'm pleased I grabbed a few goals as well."

The former Burnley striker was speaking while away on international duty with Scotland following his recall after resolving a row with manager Craig Levein.
