Fletcher on target in Saints triumph

Next Story →

Steven Fletcher's strike proved the difference as Sunderland took all three points from their long trip to fellow strugglers Southampton which they won 1-0.

The Scotland international's effort three minutes from the end of the first half was enough for victory in an even encounter at St Mary's.

Only a point separated 16th-place Sunderland and the hosts coming into the match, with Southampton also a place worse off than the north-east side.
