Fletcher on target in Saints triumph

Published Add your comment

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.
