Wolverhampton Wanderers legend Steve Bull says striker Steven Fletcher is key to the club's Barclays Premier League survival hopes.

Fletcher's side head into the weekend a point above the drop zone and face fellow strugglers Blackburn Rovers knowing a win would ensure survival.

And Bull says that the Scot's contribution can help Wolves avoid the dreaded drop.

"A lot of people were saying when Doyley was out, no-one was going to take his place," he said.

“He has done so well during the last two years and been exceptional.

"We've done well to keep him in for that many games, being the lone striker for all the season.


"Fletcher has come in, he's got his feet under the door and had a few games under his belt now.

"He's been showing he is as good as Kevin Doyle with his work-rate and goals.

"He hadn't been getting much of a sniff because of Doyley's form but Fletcher scored a lot of goals for Burnley.

"It is not a fluke what he is doing now. He is a natural goalscorer. He has proven to be that now with his strikes outside the box, headers inside the box, little flick-ons.

"He is an all-round good striker and it is a good job he has come into good form when Doyley was out."
