Fletcher hoping West Brom can find attack-defence balance

West Bromwich Albion skipper Daren Fletcher is hoping that the Baggies find a balance between attack and defence prior to Saturday's short trip to Aston Villa.


The Baggies have kept three clean sheets this season, but have managed to score only three goals in their five games and midfielder Fletcher wants an overall improvement in the West Midlands derby at Villa Park.

"We need to work on the balance between not conceding but also being a threat," he said.

"We have gone from losing the goals against Chelsea and Manchester City to not conceding and we're now looking like less of a threat going forward."
