Sunderland striker Steven Fletcher's shoulder injury is not as serious as was first feared.

The Scotland international striker dislocated his shoulder during last Saturday's 3-0 Barclays Premier League defeat at West Bromwich Albion, and there were concerns that he could be sidelined for several months.

However, interim head coach Kevin Ball said: "The news is better than we expected. Hopefully, it will be four to six weeks, which is great news."
