Fletcher On Comeback

Last updated : 09 October 2004 By Bournemouth Co-Ordinator
After a long period out through injury, it is never easy to come on and expect a player to be back at his best. But Steve Fletcher is back in the reckoning again and will soon be challenging for a starting place. Speaking to the Bournemouth Evening Echo, he was quoted as saying: "If Sean wants to play me for 10 or 15 minutes when he needs me as I work my way back to fitness, I am more than happy to do that. But I don't want that to last. I will not be happy just turning out for the last 10 minutes every week. If that was the case, I wouldn't want to be a player anymore. I want to start games. So that means getting myself back to fitness and taking my chance when I get it. It will be hard to get back into the side - maybe as hard as it has ever been - but I'm hopeful I can do it".
