The 25-year-old fired the Black Cats to a 1-0 win as they maintained their unbeaten start to the season with his fifth goal in four games.
Fletcher, who signed in a £12million deal from Wolves in the summer, has now scored all of the club's goals this season and he is hopeful his form can continue.
"The win has been coming, especially with the game last week when we conceded a late goal against us (at West Ham) and we were disappointed," he told Sky Sports.
"We wanted to put that right and I thought that today we did that."
The Scot believes this is the richest vein of form he has been in as he celebrated his 100th Premier League appearance.
"When I came here, I knew I was going to get chances with the players we've got and I'm glad I'm just putting them away."
Nobody has ever managed to score in Sunderland's first five games of the season and not even the striker was aware of that.
"No, I wasn't aware of it, so I'm happy to have achieved that. We want to push on now.
"We've got seven points now on the board and we're happy with that. We'll look to take that into next week."
