Fletcher Czechs out of Scots squad

BY foxsports • March 1, 2010

Burnley striker Fletcher is to return to Turf Moor after picking up the injury while training with the Scottish national team on Monday morning. Clarets boss Brian Laws is hopeful the 22-year-old - who is the club's top scorer this season with 11 goals - will be fit for Saturday's trip to Arsenal in the Premier League. "He has been for an x-ray and is coming back to us," Laws told the club's website. "We need to get it checked out again but we feel confident that he will be available to play at the weekend with some sort of cast." A spokesman for the Scottish Football Association confirmed that former Hibernian striker Fletcher picked up the injury when he fell during the training session at Hampden. Defender Andy Webster came through the session with no problems and is available for selection. Midfielder Lee McCulloch, however, remains a major doubt with his ankle injury but the final decision on his fitness will be taken on Tuesday.
