Fletcher determined to take Man Utd form into Scotland action

Manchester United midfielder Darren Fletcher is determined to take his club form onto the international stage.

As he prepares for his 49th cap tonight against Lithuania, he knows there are doubters who question why the man who dominates games for United has been unable to grab a match by the scruff of the neck while wearing dark blue.

"There's no doubt that there's a situation just now where I'm playing better for United than I am for Scotland and that's something I want to put right," he said.

"The expectations of me are high, but not so high that they're not reachable. Maybe because they see my performances in a United shirt they expect the same with Scotland, but it's a different situation with different players. It's achievable, though."
