Fletcher: Burnley seeing my best in central role

Steven Fletcher credits his great form at Burnley to manager Owen Coyle playing him as striker.

The striker, who swapped Hibs for Burnley in a £3m summer switch, feels he is more settled after being employed in a more familiar central role.

Fletcher said: "At first, the gaffer started me wide on the right in those early games but, after a bit, he put me through the middle and I've not looked back."

The Scottish forward has responded by scoring six goals for the Clarets - the latest coming in the 3-3 draw at Manchester City.

"Since the gaffer took a chance on me I'm feeling a lot more confident and able to cope with big games and big opponents," added Fletcher. "I certainly don't stand back and look at them like they're special."
