Sunderland boss Gus Poyet says Steven Fletcher could be fit for Saturday's clash with Swansea City.

Poyet told SAFSee that the Scottish international's progress in his recovery is good news and he is looking forward to the former Wolves man playing a key part this season.

"There is a big possibility [Fletcher will feature]," Poyet said. "It's some of the very good news from this week.

"Every player is important but we know in football that there is a few positions that are key; the goalkeeper, the spine of the team and the main man up front scoring goals.

"We need goals; we need players who have got the ability and Fletcher is one of those players.
