Striker ready for game at Craven Cottage.
Gus Poyet has confirmed that striker Steven Fletcher is fit and available for this weekend’s trip to Fulham.
Fletcher, who scored in a 3-1 win at Craven Cottage last season, limped out of the midweek Capital One Cup semi-final win over Manchester United.
However, he has returned to training ahead of Saturday's trip to the capital.
“[Steven] is perfect, he trained today with no problems at all,” Sunderland’s head coach said.
“We’re pleased there’s no problem because as you can imagine we were a bit worried.”
