Darren Fletcher says Manchester United need to go on a winning run.

United face Stoke City tonight in the Capital One Cup.

"It is hard enough watching the lads win," he said. "At least if they do that you enjoy the moments.

"It is a lot more difficult when we are not.

"We need to go on a winning run and put ourselves in a position where people are saying we are still there.

"I want to help us win matches to bring back the success we are used to."

Fletcher is in contention to play some part in Wednesday's Capital One Cup quarter-final at Stoke, declaring: "I don't want to take it easy. I've done enough of that."
