Sunderland midfielder Sebastian Larsson believes the key to the Black Cats staying out of trouble is not to rely on Steven Fletcher.

The Scotland hitman had his shooting boots on again at the DW Stadium, scoring twice in a 3-2 win that moved the Wearsiders into the safety of mid-table. It took Fletcher's seasonal tally to 10, more than a third of the 27 Sunderland have scored this season.

"We relied on him way too much earlier in the season," said Larsson. "We all have to chip in, which would give him a bit more space as well as opposition teams have other players to worry about as well."
