Fletcher to lead Scots by example

Darren Fletcher has promised to lead by example when he skippers Scotland in Saturday's World Cup qualifier against Norway.

The Manchester United midfielder will wear the armband at Hampden Park in the absence of the injured Barry Ferguson and suspended Stephen McManus.

Fletcher, 24, has led Scotland on three previous occasions, helping them to victory each time.

He said: "The captain is the leader of the team, but we have a lot of leaders in the dressing room.

"There will be a lot of voices on the pitch but I will try my best and I will try to lead by example."

Fletcher, who will earn his 40th cap tomorrow, will draw inspiration from both his United and Scotland team-mates.

"There are obviously a number of experienced players at the club, as well as internationally," he said.

"Especially at the club, you learn different things from different characters.

"But I will be my own man."

Scotland must win Saturday's Group Nine clash to get their qualification bid firmly back on track after a win and a defeat so far.

Fletcher said: "They are all massive games, they are all must-win games because you want to win every game you play in."

Manager George Burley must decide whether to start with James McFadden as a lone striker or play partner him with one of the other forwards in the squad.

Burley refused to confirm whether the uncapped Chris Iwelumo was in the frame to start, saying only: "We've got 22 players. They all trained today and they all have a part to play because it is very much a squad game.

"You need alternatives, you need combinations and I feel that we have that for this game."
