Fletcher aims to follow in Rodriguez's footsteps

Rookie Burnley striker Wes Fletcher admits he is using Jay Rodriguez's rise through the ranks as inspiration for his own fledgling career.Fletcher's double in the 2-0 reserve win at Preston on Wednesday took his total for the season to five in four games in the totesport.com league.The 20-year-old has watched on in admiration at Rodriguez's emergence as a key figure in Brian Laws' senior squad and wants to replicate his close friend's success.He said: "My aim is to be permanently with the first team and Jay is a good example."He's starting every game now and hopefully I can follow in his footsteps and get playing up there with him."I've just got to keep going, get stronger and keep working on the areas of my game I need to improve on."
