Sunderland vs Newcastle United, FA Premier League @ The Stadium of Light Sunderland 25-10-2015 Pic Steve Parkin 07540051171 Sunderland's STEVEN FLETCHER Celebrates after scoring 3rd goal

Fletcher celebrates his goal against Newcastle.

The Black Cats have seen a slight change in fortunes since Sam Allardyce took over from Dick Advocate, and the club picked up four points from their three matches in October.

Their Scotland international, Fletcher, scored in the 2-2 draw against West Ham at the Stadium of Light, before winning the penalty that changed the course of the Tyne-Wear derby against arch-rivals, Newcastle.

With Fabricio Coloccini dismissed, the striker scored his side’s third goal in the 3-0 triumph – their sixth successive win against the Toon.
