Fletcher reckons David Moyes' predecessor Sir Alex Ferguson saw the rewards of backing his players in times of trouble.
"You've got to believe that you can come good and Sir Alex Ferguson trusted the players at that time," he said.
"He saw them in training every day, saw the qualities they had, saw their performances in games and just had to get that from them on a consistent basis.
"You can look to times like that and realise just because you're going through a bad spell, it doesn't make you bad players.
"We've got to get a little bit of confidence back in our game, a little self-belief and that's about experienced players who have been there and done it coming together with the younger ones.
"Then, all of a sudden, you come back as a team and show what you are about."
