Sunderland striker Steven Fletcher is confident staying up after their draw at Cardiff City.

Fletcher reckons he can make it third time lucky by beating the top-flight drop.

The Scotland striker, who has been relegated with Burnley and Wolves, said: "Compared to the other two I've been in, this is probably the tightest one.

"At Burnley I think we were dead and buried by this time.

"This time round we've still got a massive chance.

"We've got a lot of good games coming up so we're all looking forward to that.

"Our home form's been good, we've beaten Manchester City and a few other teams, so we've just got to keep it going."
