Sunderland striker Steven Fletcher believes the 3-1 victory over Fulham on Sunday had been on the cards for a number of weeks.
Martin O'Neill's side had not won since September 29 when Fletcher's goal secured a 1-0 victory over Wigan. Scotland international Fletcher had not scored since claiming the winner against the Latics until he opened the scoring at Craven Cottage early in the second half.
"I think this win has been coming, we were unlucky at Everton and it was great to put in a good performance, score a few goals and get three points," he said.
