Football - Fletcher back for Black Cats

Striker Steven Fletcher will return to the Sunderland squad for Saturday's Barclays Premier League trip to Swansea.

PA Sport Report

The Scotland international has missed the last three games with a shoulder injury, but is back ahead of schedule and is in line to play some part in new manager Gus Poyet's first game in charge.

There could be places in the squad too for goalkeeper Keiren Westwood and defenders Wes Brown and Phil Bardsley after shoulder, calf and foot injuries respectively, but midfielder Ki Sung-yueng is ineligible to play against his parent club.
