FLETCH OUT TO BE MORE REGULAR
DARREN FLETCHER admits he is going to have to be patient as he looks to force his way back into Manchester United’s title plans.
Fletcher, 28, has featured in two Champions League games – as well as last month’s League Cup win over Newcastle – since returning from a serious bowel condition.
But the midfielder, who is on Scotland duty, is desperate to get in on the act in the Premier League, with crucial games away to Chelsea and home to Arsenal coming up.
Fletcher, whose last league outing was in November 2011, said: “I have to be patient and wait for my chance but, hopefully, one will come around sooner rather than later.
“It’s what it’s all about – getting as many games as possible.
“I think my general fitness is fine. It’s just match fitness – the sharpness, reaction times, things in your head and things like that.
“After not playing for a long time, it’s important to get games back into your legs.
“Fortunately, I have had quite a few games for the reserves as well.”
