Sunderland boss Martin O'Neill saluted striker Steven Fletcher after he left the treatment table to inspire his side to a precious 3-0 victory over Reading.

The Scotland international was not even expected to be involved on Tuesday night as he continued his recovery from an ankle injury but declared himself fit on Tuesday morning to hand his manager and team-mates a boost.

He then capped an impressive display with the second of three unanswered goals to help the Black Cats climb out of the Barclays Premier League relegation zone. And O'Neill said: "Fletcher had done absolutely no work whatsoever. When you were talking to me (before the game), I genuinely wasn't sure that he could play in the game."
