Fletcher`s Woe

Fletcher`s Woe

Having just returned from a long absence, courtesy of the much mentioned virus that laid him low, Darren Fletcher had a golden opportunity to make last night a night to remember.

Selected for his second start in four days (his only two first team appearances this season so far), Darren showed great courage in stepping forward to take a first half penalty Scotland were awarded.

Darren knew that with the Scots hopes of qualification for Euro 2012 dented by the inadequacies of the referee against the Czech Republic, that a win against Lithuania was essential.

Unfortunately, best laid plans and all that, Darren saw his spot kick saved. The kick had been awarded after Tadas Labuka had handled a free kick but some credit must be given to the keeper, Zydrunas Karcemarskas, who dived low to his left to foil Darren.

Thankfully, Scotland did take all three points courtesy of a 1-0 win so Darren`s blushes were spared.

But, it`ll be interesting to hear any comments Sir Alex Ferguson or any of his coaching / medical staff may have, after Darren`s two performances in such a shot space of time after such a long and arduous lay-off!

Unlucky Fletch but all the same you got the 3 points. Looking forward to seeing him play in a United kit again, he provides the steel in midfield we need and we do lack sufficient cover in the event he's injured, ill or suspended. Anderson and Cleverley have been great don't get me wrong but neither are the more defence-minded CM's that we need for the right balance in the Central Midfield.
