Sunderland boss O'Neill demands more than usual dozen from Fletcher

Sunderland boss Martin O'Neill wants Steven Fletcher to reassess his scoring targets.

The Scot netted twice in Saturday's 2-2 draw at Swansea, having been quoted during the week as stating he would be happy with 12 Premier League goals for the campaign.

That would equal his previous best with Wolves, but O'Neill is hungry for more.

"I have missed that interview, but I think I shall have a word with him," said the Ulsterman, whose cheeky grin as he said it did not mask the intent in his words.
